Start with your local Occupational Therapy team - you can usually self-refer and their details should be available either via your GP or on your local council website under "Adult services".

You can also buy shower chairs quite reasonably online - just google 'shower chair'. There are lots of options from straightforward stools to more comfortable chairs with a back and arms.

Hi Paula, welcome to the forum. Has mum had a Needs Assessment from Social Services, and you, a Carers Assessment? If she needs help with things like showering, she might be entitled to Attendance Allowance.
