Review - Mrs Anne Bryan - August 2018
'Trevase Granary is a great place for a holiday with a disabled person. Our family goes there every summer with our children and grandchildren and the fact that my husband is wheelchair bound following a stroke doesn’t stop him being included. A spacious ground floor bedroom with TV has a large wet room attached and there’s a stair lift to take him upstairs to the living and dining area. On fine days he can be wheeled over to the games room and garden.
The owners couldn’t be more helpful. They lend us small equipment such as a commode chair and toilet surround and help us to find firms that hire out care beds, riser recliner chairs and also a home care service which means that my husband is as comfortable as he is at home and looking after him is as easy as possible.
We look forward very much to our family get together where grandpa, despite his disabilities, can still be at the centre of the family.'
