We're delighted to unveil Molly's home adaptations, which have certainly created a 'Home for a Princess'.
Molly is a beautiful little girl that was born with various health and learning difficulties. She is unable to weight bear and has a dislocated right hip and is therefore unable to walk.
Molly has epilepsy and development delay and at night relies on a bipap ventilator to help her breathe. She sometimes requires ad hoc oxygen, but having a nasal canular on her face still does not faze her – she is one strong little fighter having been in Intensive Care three times but still shows she will do it in her own time.
Molly is delighted now that the £25,000 target required has been reached to build her new extension to the rear of the property with ramp access to the rear garden. Molly can now move around the house freely and has space to use her walker and Wizzybug!
Every day care for Molly has to be carried out by her mum so having the house adapted will be a great help to both of them, and having access to the garden will be fantastic in the summer. Molly’s mum states “Just to be able to wheel Molly straight out into the garden will make the most time consuming task so much easier.”
The internal adaptations carried out have widened doorways to make them accessible for Molly. The bathroom has been adapted, making it user friendly to bath Molly, and this adjoins Molly's bedroom with an accessible doorway between the two rooms.
A new changing bench installed in the bathroom makes bathing Molly much easier and safer for her.
A through-floor lift has been installed to safely transport Molly to her bedroom.
These adaptations have already benefitted Molly enormously, together with her Mum who can now move Molly around the house safely.
Molly's Mum says "I cannot express how much this has helped us – and my back is appreciating it as well."
