    GaryM Since I only see my wife for a weekend once a fortnight I'd be pretty smelly if I waited for a soap down. I had a stool but getting on and off proved difficult. I have removed the footplates which I don't need and I can get in okay.

    My wife covers me in soap before I get in the shower. Then I just sit on a shower stool and let it rinse off. Not brilliant but it works.

    That's tight for sure, Barry.

    If you use the walker to and from the shower itself, would a shower stool work?

    Some have swivel seats, so you could turn yourself around:

    Or you have probably tried that already.

    Love Ellie.

    Ah I see your problem Barry. No reversing isn’t going to help. Could you remove the foot plates and position a small plastic toilet step ( you know the type that small children use )in the shower to rest your feet on.

    I notice you have the same sparkly white wall boards we do. I love the way they reflect different colours

    Barry. Do you have a wet room with enough space to turn in once you are in the room. That’s what I did with Ann. It was getting through the door into the bathroom that was our problem. We only have a narrow hall way.

    Barry52 Is it self-drive or chauffeured?

    Barry, don’t know what your reversing like but I had the same problem with Ann’s shower chair. I found reversing in solved the problem. A bit like parking a car.

    A few teething problems which I’m sure I can resolve. Footplates hinder access but I will remove them once I find blanking caps to cover the holes as I don’t want water to enter. Squeaky clean now.

    That is just awful of your SS/OT, Barry - thank goodness you contacted the MNDA.

    Hope it does the job now and you can get squeaky clean safely.

    Love Ellie.
