Oh you're so lucky I'd love to be able to just have a shower to walk into and sit down, did the social do it for you?

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.
