    Nice too hear from you Max;

    There is an information sheet on it Number 22 C. It would appear to be long winded and means tested. Probably best start too sort out quickly and get it put in as soon after April the 5th as possible.

    Good luck, Terry

    We applied for DFG to adapt our bathroom to a wetroom.
    Because I am still working and hubby is too we got diddly squat. Our only other option is a loan (re-mortgaging in our case).
    They take no consideration as to how long you are likely to be working for (I am already reliant on a wheelchair and have very weak arms).

    Good luck!

    Do not dwell on the things you cannot change, instead put your energy into those you can!

    I'm very pleased for you both and it is vital for hyegine and dignity. Make sure you get the hand held shower head ( Tube 20mm wide 200app mm long with holes at one end) THIS IS GREAT FOR CLEANING ' VITAL PARTS.

    Take care

    Any savings over the limit and you will be lucky to get any help. If you think your house needs converting, get it done soon because this terrible disease advances all the time. Good luck.
