Are there places that do accessible baths or spa treatments?

Hi. I look after my mum who has recently had a prolonged period in hospital which has left her bed bound due to loss of condition. Trying to give her the best quality of life and learn more about disability and ideas to help and look forward to chatting to others. 

I’m interested to know if there’s such a thing as being able to go somewhere and have an accessible bath. Somewhere that can be hired. Mum would love a bath. 

Also, are there places that do spa treatment for people who are frail and bed bound. We’d love her to have a massage or hydrotherapy. 

We’re in Rossendale. Thanks for any advice or tips at all 😊

    Hi @Helen_Rossendale

    Have you tried contacting your local council?  They may/should be able to help and at the very least advise.

    Details from google search:

    Hi Helen, I used to know somebody who took a disabled family member to a privately owned care home every so often for a day or half a day where treatments including having a bath in an accessible bath with a hoist were provided for her. I think the care home had one day per week when non-residents were able to use some of the facilities or even just socialise with others under supervision while the family members that usually cared for them had some time off. I'm afraid I've now forgotten which company owned the care home but it's certainly something worth looking into.
