Hi Janet,

mine was done by the council when they adapted my bungalow (council house)

Thanks All for answering my question. At present we have a bath and I have to risk falling getting into the bath to have a shower as I can no longer sit in a bath without sliding down as my back just will not support me. Thanks once again.

Hello,

If you have smooth glossy tiles in the shower area you can get handles with suction pads and you can place them wherver you want

I talk about them on my website http://www.aid4disabled.com/always-take-a-shower/. You can also but through my website.I find them absolutely invaluable.  Also got a vertical handle or rab rail.

Find both those items essential, to get into the shower and yto hold whilst having a shower.

Good luck,

Patrick
