Social workers approval needed for a wet room?
Hello, Name's John and actually contacting here is a big step for me, need some advice on where to look/read.
A little about me:
Just coming to my weekly attendence by Psych nurses being downgraded to a lower lvl, not sure about this.
Have major mobility problems, Constant dizziness, moving too quick and I black out, Mri's coming up for that.
Extremley swollen lower legs, on water retetion tablets atm and x rays next month.
This bit really distresses me, Because of the mobility issues I can not use the bath or shower, so I have to sit on a stool in front of the sink and bathe myself with 3 face flannels etc. It gets the worst off, but within an hour or so I know I pong.
Social services are aware since early last year and I have been approved a social worker by phone test-thing, but so far...nothing.
My Housing people are ready for approval to fit a wetroom style something, but need the social workers approval, anything I can do about this?
Also Depression, anxiety, insomnia etc, the list goes on.
