Disabled Adaptations - Kitchen & Bathroom
A suitable, well adapted home can be the defining factor in enabling a disabled person to live well and independently. This is often taken for granted, but this wish is not always so simple for disabled users.
Sf- Stefan have been installing adapted wet rooms and occupational kitchens for our client’s for over 10 years a suitable, well adapted home can be the defining factor in enabling a disabled person to live well and independently. This is often taken for granted, but this wish is not always so simple for disabled users.
Kitchens and Bathrooms are a vital element of the house, but for disabled users who value their independence without these facility’s in place it could provide some major frustrations.
If you or someone living with you has a disability, you may qualify for grant aid. Please check with your local council for more information.
We carry out the works recommended & designed by your local Occupational Therapist or local housing trust: if you are unable to contact an occupational therapist for a kitchen bathroom deign contact one of the Occupational therapist team at Sf-Stefan and we can arrange this service for you.
Kitchens can be modified or replaced with design features so that major kitchen functions can be carried out by disabled users. In the luxury of their own home
Level Access Showers: Showers are much easier to use than baths together with a textured surface that will help prevent slips. Another increasingly popular method is wet floor shower areas as an alternative to fitting a shower tray – this provides completely open and level access. They are ideal for wheelchair users, and a good choice where it is not practical to install a tray. These can also have half height carer doors fitted if the resident is unable to wash them self’s the carer can then wash the resident without getting wet
