Seek further help if a bath or box step is the only solution offered
Following your online assessment you have only been offered a bath or box step. If you feel this does not meet your needs, please seek further advice from your local Independent Living Centre or alternatively by your local Adult Services department. There may be other products to help you. Please explain that you have already completed an online assessment because you are having difficulty lifting your legs into the bath and that it was recommended that you seek further help. The Adult Services department of your local authority can be contacted by using the 'Request further help with this assessment' button. This can be found at the end of all assessments on the Assessment Summary page.
