A company which specialises in adapting bathrooms for elderly and disabled people is offering to install free grab rails for clients stuck indoors due to the coronavirus crisis.
Eastern Adaptations, based in King’s Lynn, said it wanted to help people through difficult times as a “stepping stone to a more long term solution once this pandemic is over”.
“Many clients have gone into isolation so postponing adaptations projects where possible,” explained the firm’s business development manager Kian Carvell.

“Our way of giving back to the community is installing free of charge grab handles and rails, drop-down rails, shower chairs and toilets raisers to help people through these times.
