Financial help with adapting bath for handicap

    • July 22, 2016 at 9:26 pm

      I am in need of financial resources to help remodel my bathroom to include a wheelchair accessible shower. I am on a limited income and cannot afford a remodel. I was diagnosed with CIDP in 2008 and have increasingly become weaker and weaker. I cannot no longer walk, and cannot transfer myself from my scooter to the transfer chair in my tub. Any information / suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      There are City agencies that can help with this, they helped me in LA to modify my bathroom. Where do you live?

      Jim-La, I am located in east Texas. I have checked all available resources and no one is willing to help. Thanks for replying.

      There are numerous municipalities in East Texas! I checked the City of Texarkana and they appear to have services that may support you, if you lived there. In lieu of a City name, perhaps the best resource would be the State of Texas Dept of Aging and Disability Services here:

      They have numerous programs you could leverage for financial aid. I hope some of this works for you.

      When I became that weak a neurologis put me in hospital immediately and began treatments. Are you being treated for this? Your needs will soon go beyond an accessible shower.
