I have some options (I have to say it's quite exciting) but I need some unbiased input and you are all it!
Of the following which would you choose for your loved one. let me set the scene:
Detached bungalow with a bathroom that contains a standard bath with shower over, hand basin and wc
Now I can do one of the following - there isn't a HUGE price difference but I want to make sure I get it right first time
1 Take the bath out and put in a walk in bath
Concern currently ..... Fine for now but wont be when she cant walk; Requires commode in her bedroom
2 Keep the existing bath but get a proper hoist for mum fitted into the ceiling on a track
Concern currently ..... fine but I am scare of using a hoist and as Mum's dementia progresses she might be too; Requires commode in her bedroom
3 Take out bath and put in a very low rise (about 1 centimetre above level) shower It has half doors and is the length of the bath
Concern currently ..... None really and I could wheel mum into if she got worse. Requires commode in her bedroom
4 Put in a shower pod in her bedroom
Concern currently ..... Would I need to install an extractor/dehumidifier ? Requires commode in her bedroom too
5 Put in a shower/wc/handbasin/ wetroom pod into her bedroom
Concern currently ..... Would I need to install an extractor/dehumidifier ?
