There are large numbers of families in the United Kingdom that look after a disabled member of the family on an ongoing basis. These families work hard every day to try to make a life for themselves and their families and taking care of a less able-bodied person can be expensive, but also incredibly difficult to do. Anything that makes their lives easier has to be applauded and thankfully, there is help in the United Kingdom, in the shape of disabled facilities grants for families to help them change their homes to suit the disability of the person living there.
All you need are the building plans in Sandwell and there are specialised companies who can install that you need. There are a number of things that can be added to the home to make life easier for everyone.
- Ramps can be built for those that use wheelchairs or any other mobility equipment to get around. The doors can also be widened to cater for this and shallow steps can be installed.
- Taking a shower or a bath can be made much more accessible by adding wheel in facilities that allow the shower to be opened completely and the controls can be lowered for easier use.
- A stair lift is a great addition for someone who is too old to be able to climb the stairs. This device will take them up and down the stairs, so that they can stay in their home.
Life doesn’t have to stop because you have a disability. There is lots of help out there. You just need to ask for it.
