Did you know that Crossroads Care Cheshire West, Wirral and Shropshire run a bathing service?
People often take getting up, washed and dressed for granted but it doesn’t take much for it to become a difficult task. Our approach is to provide a genuine helping hand rather than making people feel like they cannot care for themselves. Our staff will help with getting in and out of the bath, drying and dressing, preserving your dignity and privacy at all times, but ill be close by should you need them.
We recently received a donation from John Church, Vice Chairman of NHS Cheshire, Warrington & Wirral. John’s kind donation was 5 bathing cushion inflatable bath lifts, at a cost of £2260, John has also funded a years maintenance for the bathing cushions as well.
The inflatable bathing cushion requires no installation and weighs only 2kg, making it exceptionally portable yet highly durable. The product can be packed away into a small holdall for ease of transportation. The bath lift is designed to allow you to lie right down in the bath giving the user optimum bathing pleasure. There is also the option of leaving some air in the cushion while bathing, enabling the cushion to mould around you for additional comfort and support.
Anyone can make a referral to our bathing service. If you know of anyone who would benefit and would like to make a referral, please contact our care team on 0151 343 1960.
