Holiday cottages with a portable shower chair

shower chairA seat in the shower is necessary for the elderly and disabled. Sometimes a collapsible shower chair is fitted to the wall and although this is useful for people who need just that seat for comfortable showering, it is sometimes not sufficient when transferring from a wheelchair. A sturdy shower chair that can be moved to the right position can be more appropriate. Holiday cottages that are fully adapted for wheelchair users will have these in place, others may have one that can be placed in a holiday cottage for a particular visitor.

The trouble when looking for a suitable place to stay for elderly or disabled people is that the details are not always mentioned and a conversation with the owners or managers of the accommodation is required. We would recommend having a preliminary conversation before booking as a matter of course. Have your list of requirements ready and do ask about each. the facilities of holiday accommodation can change and these changes are not always reflected in the photographs. Ask.

The alternative is to bring a collapsible portable shower chair with you. These are readuly purchased from shops and web sites that specialise in disability aids.
