Mrs A lives in a semi-detached house with her husband. She has poor mobility, arthritis and lymphoedema.
Mrs A approached Care & Repair-Leeds because she was struggling on the stairs and accessing the side door. A holistic assessment was conducted and various support options were provided to prevent falls and keep her safe in her house. Mrs A was worried about her hands slipping on the dado rail and possibly falling on the stairs. She wasn’t confident about using her side door and was struggling to get on and off the toilet safely.
