Professionals: Mersey Care bathing adaptations referral

If you are a Mersey Care occupational therapist and have previously identified bathing equipment which does not meet your clients' needs, you can refer direct to Agency Services for a Disabled Facilities Grant for a level access shower.

Before you start

Points to consider:

  • A level access shower is suitable and will replace the bath.
  • The person you are referring would be able to access the facility without difficulty - for example, there are no difficulties with stair mobility if the bathroom is on the first floor.

If other areas of need have been identified and cannot be addressed, please complete an occupational therapy referral online

If no other areas of need have been identified, you can make a bathing adaptation referral online below.
