When we received a call from Mrs Barker we knew she had a distinctive problem but not one we couldn’t help with. Her husband was wheelchair bound and getting heavier as the days went by. He now weighed 28st and Mrs Barker couldn’t help lift or move him on her own.
Mr Barker really wanted a bath to be able to soak away his aches and pains. The problem was getting in and out, up and down and also finding a bath deep enough to cover him in hot water. We offered him our Oakham 75 Special which is wider than most walk in baths and also could take up to a 35 stone person in a sitting position. The full width opening door meant he could wheel up to the side and easily transfer across onto the seat using the grab bars. The Oakham Special comes fitted with a spa jet massaging system which was great for soothing his aching joints etc.
Two months on; Mr Barker is enjoying the benefits of being able to have a relaxing hot bath and the independence it brings.
