Being able to go that extra mile

Milea-Jo is a lively young girl with an infectious laugh. She also has spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, a condition which affects her whole body. Although Milea-Jo operates a specialised wheelchair, routine activities were becoming increasingly difficult around the home.

Liverpool Mutual Homes put HMS in touch with Milea-Jo and her mum Steph to discuss what home adaptations were needed to improve access and make life a little easier for them both.

Plans were put into action for an extension to their bungalow, to include a new bedroom and a level access bathroom. The bathroom contained a seated shower area and hoist so Milea-Jo’s mum didn’t have to continue lifting as much. HMS project managed the scheme and worked in partnership with a specialist subcontractor throughout the build.

In addition to the build work, the project team decided to go the extra mile and make the reveal more special. Milea-Jo explained that she loves unicorns and diamonds, so HMS arranged a surprise selection of unicorn accessories for both her bedroom and bathroom, including designing a unicorn feature wall.

“It’s been fun to see our home go through the transformation, explains Steph. “The team were great and kept the place as clean as they could.”

Milea-Jo says: “It’s so special, all for me!”
