Care for the elderly in Northumberland.
Jean is a resident in one of our bungalows. These are eight living units, helping residents to live independently with additional support if required.
Recently Jean found it difficult to use her bath and shower, and the unit was beginning to show signs of deterioration. The Home Group is the housing association which is responsible for the upkeep of the bungalows, and they assessed the bathroom and agreed to install a brand new accessible shower. The Charlotte Straker Project funded 50% of the upgrade.
Jean now finds it much easier to use and says “it’s very warm and I’m not worried about falling over anymore.” Thank you to the Home Group for being so responsive and replacing the shower with a minimum of fuss and mess!
