Specialist Disability Adaptations in Bristol

Renovating your property so you can be independent at home

Home adaptations for the elderly or disabled 

Making adaptations to your property allows you to live in your home for longer without the need for you to move into sheltered accommodation or a care home.

This is not only cost-effective in the long term, but it also means that you can live freely and safely in the comfort of your own home.  

When you choose us you'll be in safe hands. Our skilled team with over 50 years of experience are specialists in making disability adaptations to properties throughout Bristol and South Gloucestershire.

We can make home improvements such as lowering your kitchen worktops so you can prepare food easier or installing a seated shower so you can bathe yourself safely. 

Our team is renowned for coming up with innovative solutions to improve the quality of your life. Our tailored service also means that we'll offer you full guidance and support all the way through your project. 


Put your confidence in us

We offer a wide range of custom-built disability adaptations for customers living within a 20-mile radius of Bristol. With over 50 years of experience in adapting the homes of Bristol and South Gloucestershire, you can firmly put your trust in us to modify your home to meet your exact needs. Our service is not only professional but it's also affordable. 

We undertake all types of residential projects and of any size because we want you to be able to live happily in your home for as long as you can. 

Whether you use a walking stick or a wheelchair, we can help make your home more accessible. 

Practical bathroom modifications

Our team of specialists can help to make your bathroom safe again by making various modifications, so you don't have to be afraid of slipping or falling over when you're washing or using the toilet.

There are many different options available when adapting your bathroom to suit your requirements. For example, if you're a wheelchair user or have limited mobility we can install a wet room (also known as a walk-in shower) with a level access walk-in floor. We can widen the doorway so you can easily get in and out and move around the bathroom.

If you have limited mobility but would prefer a more traditional style shower or bathroom, we can lower your shower tray that will significantly reduce the chance of you injuring yourself by tripping over it, and we can add a flip-down seat in your shower so you won't have to stand up, instead, you can sit down and wash safely and comfortably. 

Our highly skilled and experienced team install:

  • Wet rooms (Walk-in-Showers)
  • Walk-in bathtubs
  • Raised toilets
  • Lowered wall-hung bathroom sinks
  • Adjustable showerheads
  • Emergency pull-chords
  • Anti-slip flooring
  • Safety bars
  • Shower curtains/doors
  • Lowered shower trays
  • Seated showers
