SARAH'S STORY – MY TERN SHOWER TRAY IS A REVELATION.

In 2004 Sarah Johnson was diagnosed with relapsing remitting MS. Although Sarah is able to walk using crutches, she had to give up her hairdressing career which she loved, and now works in the local college as an education support assistant.

To take a bath Sarah was using a bath board which sat on the top edges of her bath. She had to begin by transferring her self onto the bath board while at the same time lifting her legs over the bath's edge so that she was in a seated position. Sarah found this very tiring and it was something she only managed to do with great difficulty due to her limited mobility. 

But, the physical exertions didn't end there! Simple tasks like reaching out for the shower controls, shampoo or shower gel were a real effort and it made Sarah question whether she could subject her self to this ordeal on a daily basis.

The Tern has been a revelation. Sarah can now shower in confidence and complete safety. She has retained her independence within her own home and feels completely safe when showering which now takes a fraction of the time it used to!

Previously, the prospect of having to physically clamber up onto the bath and strain to reach the toiletries was sometimes enough for Sarah to think twice about whether she needed to use the bath and maintain the basic personal hygiene that we would normally take for granted.

The Tern shower tray has had an enormous positive impact on Sarah's life. Sarah still has the day-to-day challenges of living with MS, but, it's nice for her to not have to think or worry about the simple task of showering. Self-care is an integral part of Sarah's daily life and now she is showering when she wants, and, thanks to the time it saves her, enjoying the odd lie in too!
