Valerie stays independent

Valerie was having difficulty using the shower and this affected her ability to live independently in her own home. Her shower control had a circular knob that was hard to turn so Vic Brown, a volunteer with Remap Derby modified it for her. He took a mould of the shower control, then made a nylon bar that would fit perfectly onto this. The result is a nice long lever control that Valerie can easily turn.

Valerie commented that she was “very pleased … it has enabled me to retain my independence”
