A.Giffney and Sons Ltd. installs a full range of disabled bathrooms to properties all over North Dublin. These bathrooms can be customised around the mobility issue of the client.
Our professional design team creates the bathroom based on the client and the available space.
Some of the features we install include:
Level access shower trays
Shower seats and low-level enclosures
Level access wet floor
Bath lifts and bathing benches
Low and high-level disabled toilets
We have worked closely with the council for many years, helping clients receive the disability council grant.
We access the space before designing the bathroom that is suitable for the occupant of the property. Our professional designs are then submitted to an occupational therapist for an assessment.
Pending the approval of the occupational therapists review, the client will be awarded a council grant to cover some if not all of the cost of the bathroom renovation. To date, our designs can boast a 100% success rate.
A properly designed disabled bathroom can be optimised to suit the specific mobility needs of the resident.
Does the floor space need to be extended to accommodate a wheelchair?
Do extra handrails need to be added to the walls for extra support?
Whatever the client needs, customised disabled bathrooms can be designed to address the specific mobility concerns of the resident.
A professionally designed and installed disabled bathroom makes it much safer for a person with mobility issues to use.
Bathrooms can be fitted with emergency alarms, walk-in baths and slip-resistant surfaces.
The Housing Adaptation Grant for People with a Disability makes adapting a traditional bathroom more affordable than ever.
Our team can advise clients on how to apply for this grant.
- Survey and Plans
The first step in the Disabled Bathroom renovation process is planning the layout of the bathroom.
This survey and planning process ensures perfect ergonomic for easy access to the toilet, shower/bath and washbasin. The planning of the disabled bathroom is completed by our highly experienced team.
- Clarification and Occupational Therapist Consultation (if required)
If necessary, all survey and plans are forwarded to an occupational therapist to ensure the plans are suitable for the specific mobility concerns of the homeowner.
- Selecting Goods and Tiles
To ensure the disabled bathroom renovation suits the aesthetics of the property we have a wide selection of fixtures and tiles available that the client can choose. If fixtures and tiles have been purchased from a third party, our Dublin disabled bathroom builders can, of course, install these.
Our range of fixtures and tiles include:
Shower Trays and Doors
Suites and Accessories
Specialist Bathroom Products for the Less-Abled
How do I go about applying for the disabled bathroom grant?
Our team of Dublin builders are available to assist clients in the application of the various disabled bathroom grants that are available.
These various grants can help with the costs associated with renovating a bathroom for an elderly person or a person with specific mobility needs.
We recommend having a occupational therapist access the specific mobility needs of the person and suggest the right disabled bathroom features to maximise their level of independence.
There are three financial grants available for disabled bathroom renovations including the Housing Adaptation Grant for People with a Disability, the Mobility Aids Grant Scheme and the Housing Aid for Older Persons Scheme.
Our Dublin builders can advise on the right type of financial grant for your needs.
Please keep in mind that the successful application of any of the above grants may be subject to a mean's test.
