Remodeled for a person with disabilities the toilet is way too short and I don't have a grab bar to pull myself up and all I have is a walk-in shower that I can't control the knobs or reach the shower wand or hold it to wash myself what I wish for is to replace the shower with a walk-in tub that a person with my disabilities severe rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia can use to wash and bathe myself I cannot afford to pay In-Home Care to come help take a shower to wash up. What I wish I could do is to put in a taller toilet with a flush easy to reach for disabled people and to put a walk-in tub so that I may get in sit down soak in the tub and wash at my leisure if I get tired I don't have to have somebody come and help me up off my shower chair with the shower wand spraying all over the bathroom getting my floor wet with the walk-in tub I could complete my washing at my pace place my towels as needed to dry off before I wash and I can dry at my own leisure please help me keep my Independence I don't think I could afford Assisted Living facility where they help you clean up and bathe. I am on a very fixed income any help would be greatly appreciated I would like to be able to just pay somebody all At Once by a licensed contractor that installs walk-in tubs for the disabled. Any little bit will help even if it's just $1 any little bit helps thank you so much for your time in Reading this God bless.
Below is the situation I'm in and why I am needing this.
Left Hand: the ring ring finger and middle finger or curbing at the last joint all of the fingers are pronating outward towards the little finger impossible to grasp anything due to weakness of hand.
Right Hand: it started with the middle finger what the doctor called trigger finger to where my finger was bent at a 45 degree angle and Frozen I couldn't move it either way he tried moving it and almost broke my finger . The ring and Pinky finger started out with what the in the last 6 months they have closed to the point I cannot open them further than any position I have in the photo the index finger I tried to stretch and keep it straight as much as possible but as you can see I'm in a losing battle my feet starting with left then right:
right foot and this is not trick photography yes I lost a little toe and the metatarsal bone behind it due to a blister I got on my foot on the hot pavement in Arizona and it led to a staph infection 44 days in a rehab facility I had to learn to walk and everything all over again I know a toe is not much but I have gained great respect for anyone who has lost a arm or leg
