I need to make some modifications in my elderly mother's bathroom. She can't get in/out of the tub now, and the bathroom is so tiny, the lifts and other devices won't work. (not enough room to get her in and out)
The tub is something like 53 x 27. That's the space we have to put in a shower (either with a molded seat, or use a shower seat on legs), and then a hand-held shower set.
Are there any shower surround kits that are 27 inches wide (or deep, we could turn it)?
I can't stress how tiny this bathroom is. Any more than the 27 inches and it would block the door.
Right now, we're using a motorized lift in MY bathroom so she can bathe, but she has a very difficult time getting up my front stairs. I have a big bathroom, so this works, but it's not going to be long before it's just too difficult for her to get up my stairs. We need a solution. In fact a couple of times we've taken her to a Holiday Inn, checked into a disabled room, and then let her shower that way. But long term, that's not a good solution.
We're going to hire a plumber to do this, but I was looking around at Lowes and Home Depot websites, and they all seem to be 32 inches and beyond.
