Libby is a happy seven year old who lives with me her mum, her dad and sister and brother in Surrey. She has a diagnosis of Global Development Delay, Cortical Visual Impairment, sleep disorders and a history of infantile spasms.
Her difficulties are complex and long term which means she has to attend a specialist school. Libby relies on us to lift and hoist her, as well as feed and attend to all her other needs. Libby's sister and brother are twins and they play a big part in taking care of her and it is apparent from Libby's big smiles that she loves them being around.
In order for Libby to better access everyday living she needs and is going to need further adaptations and specialist equipment in our home. We are therefore wishing to install a lift, wet room and accessible equipment so that Libby’s sleeping/bathing arrangements can remain on the same floor as the rest of us but can be accessed safely and comfortably. These adaptations will mean that all the family can safely mobilise Libby around the home and that she can be more easily included in daily family life.
