Life-changing kit for Sam
 
Just before Christmas, we caught up up with 'Team Sam'. A crack squad of family members and nurses that care for 24-year old Sam Higgins, Team Sam had been searching for a solution to their moving and handling needs. 
 
Listen to Coral Thompson, one of Sam's team members, talk about the impact of the equipment.

Accessible bathrooms
 
We've partnered with a specialist adaptations company who transform existing spaces into level-access bathrooms and wet rooms.
 
If either yourself or a client is struggling to use the bath, shower or loo, why not get in touch? We can talk through low-cost solutions as well as more permanent adaptations.

We’d call that a tree-umph.
