Marianne* finds it difficult to shower because of dizziness and breathlessness caused by heart disease. This makes her reluctant to see her friends, causing her to feel isolated.
- A shower chair to reduce effort and increase safety
- Grab rails in the shower to increase safety
- A different shower head and a shower curtain in case Marianne wants to have help to shower
- Change to room ventilation to make breathing easier when showering
- A terry-towelling dressing gown and seat to make drying off easier (reduce exertion)
Marianne is now able to shower far more independently and safely, giving her confidence to socialise more often.
