Disabled Bathrooms, Wakefield
Disabled Bathroom Service
Unfortunate circumstances in life, age-related factors or disabilities can make your house and especially the bathroom environment, a health and safety issue and unwelcoming area to be in. Floors can become slippy, and the bath itself inaccessible because of the height. We cater for and offer solutions in our business that can completely change your bathroom around to suit your personal disability or mobility difficulties. We serve the Wakefield and West Yorkshire riding.
While any properly designed disabled bathroom caters for the personal needs of the disabled member of the family, we try not to leave the rest of the family members out in our design principles. We always try to keep their needs met also, as we design and build a bathroom that suits everyone.
Special Adaptive Bathroom
For us to design and produce a bathroom that's adaptable to senior citizens and someone with disabled needs, then you really must have a non-slip type of flooring installed, grab railings for added support and safety and non-slip shower or bath surfaces installed within. In addition to that work, we will always install specially raised basins and toilets that will be a comfortable height for the intended users. The next part would be to install thermostatically controlled shower units and suitable baths with openings at the side. If a wet room is more your style, then we will create an open plan design to suit your specific requirements and install adjustable shower controls that are lever operated and at the correct height for the user.
After we fully renovate and complete all the installation of your bathroom, then you can completely eliminate all the slips, falls, and trips, that you may have experienced beforehand and start to enjoy a safe and comfortable environment. Our walk-in style shower design units that we can install for you will not have the usual door as a hindrance, making access in and out a more pleasant experience and easy for any wheelchair users.
If you still want to have the comfort of a long soak in a bath, then we have walk-in type baths we can offer and design for you. These are very user-friendly with fully equipped non-leaking doors and they are of fantastic quality. However, they are best used and ideal for those users that can walk, which I am afraid excludes wheelchair users from this option. Once the bather has finished taking a bath, they will always need to drain the bathe before opening and exiting the unit.
If you have been on the lookout for simplicity and an all-round easy accessible kind of bathroom, then may I suggest a wet room, as this ticks all the boxes and could be ideal for your circumstances. Because it offers minimalism, a wheelchair-bound person and user can enter and get in and out smoothly totally unaided. To make them even safer and more secure, we also include our non-slip safety areas, we just install all the controls, levers and knobs to the height of the person in question, and the addition of grab handles will create the balance that is needed for them to be comfortable.
If you would like to make a normal and regular bath unit so it's usable by all the family, including the disabled member, may we suggest the installation of one of our bath lifts? The user can sit on the lift, which will then slowly lower them into the bath. Once the person has finished bathing they can press a control switch and be raised out from the bath. This system is ideal for people that can sit on the bath by the side first and swing their legs over when entering and swing them back over onto the floor upon exit. The unit can easily be removed when not in use or for cleaning purposes.
Another great option available for your wheelchair users is a dedicated bath hoist. This is basically a seat where the person sits and they hoisted up and down into the bath. They come in mechanical and electrical powered versions. If a user lives by themselves, then a powered device would be recommended as the mechanical version needs an extra person to assist with the operating.
