HOME ADAPTATIONS FOR ELDERLY MOTHER

Hi Folks

My elderly mother, who lives with us, can no longer climb stairs.  We have a very small bathroom downstairs which only consists of a toilet and wash basin.

We are thinking of extending this small bathroom in order to fit a shower for my mother and have enough room to place the bed nearby.

Does anyone know if there is any financial help available to cover these costs?

A friend of mine mentioned a disabled facilities grant.  Would that apply in this case?  If so, what is the criteria for getting one?

Thank You
