We were so grateful for the support of Help for Health last year with a grant to help us fund a specialised bath for disabled children at Kings Mills Special School in East Yorkshire.
Laraine Hancock at Kings Mill told about one of her pupils, Owen, who loves relaxing in the bubble bath. Due to his physical disability he is unable to access a bath at home, so the two nights he stays over at the Residence he is able to do so and feels relaxed and refreshed afterwards.
Laraine says: “All of the young people enjoy the bathing experience, some preferring the lights to the bubbles, others enjoying the two together and they all love the fact that they can lay in the bath with their favourite music playing.
“It is an amazing piece of equipment that has provided a whole new sensory experience for many children who previously did not like having a bath due to mobility, behavioural and communication barriers.”
