Back in September, we met 54-year-old Sarah Collins, a mum from Boston whose life was turned upside down after falling in her bathroom and breaking her collarbone.  

 

Following this, everyday tasks such as accessing her bath and standing in the shower were becoming more difficult. 

 

Worried that her mobility was worsening over time, Sarah reached out to her local council and asked for a grant to help her fund the home adaptations she’d need.  

 

Once approved, she decided she would start by making her bathroom more accessible.  

 

To complete the works, Sarah got in touch with our HomePlus team; specialists in tailored home adaptations for the elderly and those living with disabilities.  

 

Shortly before lockdown began in March, our Adaptions Delivery Lead Simon paid Sarah and her family a visit to discuss her options.  

 

It was agreed that they would build her a new bathroom from scratch featuring a walk-in shower, handrails and brand-new tiling that she could pick out herself.  

Following lockdown, the team returned in mid-September to begin the works and Sarah couldn’t be more pleased with the results. 

 

Describing her new bathroom, Sarah says she’s grateful that HomePlus have finally given her a bathroom she can be proud of. 

 

She said: “It’s fantastic for my mobility and looks superb.” 

 

“It’s an absolute dream of a bathroom and has made such a difference to my life."
