Court Close is approached on a tarmac sloping drive - cars can get within good reach of the door.
There is level access through a side door (82cms) into the wide back hall of the house.
The downstairs bedroom is off this back hall. The door is 82cms wide and the bedroom has a wooden floor with rugs that can be removed if you wish. This room is very spacious and wheelchair access is excellent.
There is a door (82cms wide) into the downstairs wet room, with shower, low level sink (height 80cms)and toilet. No rails are provided in this area.
Wheelchair movement throughout the downstairs rooms of the house is good, it is all completely level. Most doors are 82cms with some 75cms.
Access to the patio area from the house is down two very small steps (max 10cms). Access from the back porch is down another small step. There is then access to the main patio area, but the smaller east facing patio has two stone steps (12.5cms).
However a chair can be taken around the house and onto the patio or lower lawn area without going over any steps.
Hoists, bed raisers and shower chairs etc can be hired locally from Dorchester Mobility. They are extremely helpful and can be contacted on 01305 213 141. They will deliver and collect by arrangement for a small charge. Unfortunately we are unable to do this for you.
