Living with a disability or restricted mobility isn’t easy. It’s hard enough having to cope with the extra mental and physical demands in life. If your home is hard to get around then living independently can become almost impossible.
Home adaptations are an essential part of helping people with restricted mobility of all kinds live a more independent life in their own home.
Mint North West of Wigan have been dedicated to providing home adaptations of all kinds for many years. From wet rooms and easy access showers and baths. To ramps to make it easier to get in and out of the house. Here’s how Mint Home Adaptations can benefit you.
Wet Rooms – a great way of making washing and showering much easier.
Those who haven’t seen a wet room probably won’t understand the benefits for people with mobility issues. A wet room is when a bathroom is converted and the shower tray or bath removed. The entire floor is waterproofed and a drainage point added over the shower. Water from the shower simply falls from the shower onto the waterproof floor and into the drain.
No steps or edges to climb over, you simply walk into the bathroom and start showering. No need to climb in to the bath or step on to a shower tray.
Wet rooms aren’t just for people with mobility issues, they’re often the perfect solution for many. Vogue interior designers and high quality hotels often choose wet rooms as a practical yet stylish bathroom solution.
The obvious benefits of a wet room for people with restricted mobility is the lack of a step or climb into the bath. Plus as the entire floor surface needs to be waterproof and slip proof, wet rooms provide the perfect solution for those who may be worried about slipping in the bathroom on wet tiles.
Mint North West have their own installation and support team who can take care of every aspect of your wet room installation. Everything is taken care of from start to finish.
Ramps – the safer and better alternative to steps.
Almost everyone has fallen up or down steps from time to time. Steps can be a pain in the neck for many but for people with restricted mobility steps can prove a nightmare, or even deadly. A ramp is the perfect solution!
