Here is Emma's story.
My name's Emma, this is my dog Luna, I have lived in Staffordshire for 13 years and I used to be a nurse but gave up when I got bad arthritis.
I got the Plant Pot Holder Rail because I was on Facebook and saw an advert from EON offering grants. I thought it looked really nice and I do struggle getting in and out but I didn't want an old granny rail.
I’ve had people come knocking on the door asking where I've got it from because it looks pretty and they don't realise it’s a grab rail which is what you want, I think.
It's important because it stops me falling and getting injured, but more than that, people give you nice compliments about it as opposed to thinking 'that's a disabled person'. And whilst I have got disabilities, I'm a normal person my walking just isn't great.
" I could show you photographs of bad injuries from coming out the house and falling. I have actually broken two door handles using them to get in and out of the house so the hand rail has really saved me money as well"
The reason I didn't have one of the grab rails is that, I did actually get one but it didn't look nice so when I saw this I just thought it would be ideal.
"I didn't want an old granny rail because I think it makes you look vulnerable, and it makes you look old. And I'm not old, not in my head anyway"
