Assisted and Therapeutic Bathing
Assisted and therapeutic bathing has been available at Sheppard House since July 2007. The annexe has two bathing suites, which offer assisted bathing with relaxing massage/cleansing bath or shower. During 2012 we installed a purpose built shower to enable our clients to also have an assisted shower.
Thank you to the Sobell Foundation for providing the capital to enable this to happen and also The Walk in Bathing Company who made such an excellent job of the installation. There are various therapies such as back-care and chiropody available in the annexe. We also have someone who visits regularly to check and clean hearing aids. During this year 699 baths/showers were given at the bathing annex, and 168 appointments were kept with the visiting chiropodist.
