When my mom decided to move in with her sister in Queens, I knew that it was the best thing for both of them. They are both widowed, and my cousins, two brothers and I do not live close to either of them. They would gain companionship, save money, and it would just be safer overall. They decided to make my aunt’s home their shared home, but I knew that we were going to have to make one adjustment. I contacted a company that does shower replacement in Queens NY to see what the cost would be to convert a tub into just a shower.
Neither of them can take baths because it is just too hard for them to get back up. My aunt was using a shower chair that she would sit on, and she also had safety bars installed. That was fine, but it was just enough for my mom. She could not get her legs over the edge of the tub, and I knew that it was an accident waiting to happen. I assured my brothers I would take care of it, and we all decided to split the cost evenly between us since it would ultimately benefit both of them.
I was able to find a company that was able to come out and give an estimate that was amazing. The time frame was perfect too because it could get done before we moved our mom there. The financial part of it was really cool too as it was much less than any of us thought something of this magnitude would cost. Now, both ladies have a walk in shower, a built in seat, and plenty of nooks and crannies for their soaps, shampoos and other shower supplies. They both love the shower, and they are thrilled to be living together now.
