Longhurst Group customer says fully accessible home ‘makes his life easier’

A customer who’s recently moved into a fully accessible bungalow near Lincoln has thanked Longhurst Group for helping ‘make his life easier’.

Mike Meacock, who has terminal cancer, moved into his accessible home in Dunholme in early April.

It’s one of two fully accessible bungalows on the development, which include features such as adjustable worktops and sinks, different coloured sockets to help visually impaired people, widened doorways and corridors and a charging point for mobility scooters in the hallway.

They also have a level access shower tray, complete with seat, to make the whole home fully accessible.

Mike said: “I suffer with terminal cancer, so living here just makes my life easier.

“The room sizes are perfect and when moving in, it’s so much easier to get stuff through the doorways.

“It’s a beautiful place and it just makes everything easier for me and I’m so grateful for this opportunity.”

Mike added that he thought more housing associations should look to build more accessible homes on their developments.

He said: “I think it’s great that more homes like this one are being built as it contributes to making people’s lives much easier and happier.

“I definitely think even more accessible homes should be built. With the world the way it is at the moment and with more people living with illness and disability, we should be doing as much as we can to help even more people.

“I know that I’ve been very fortunate to get this home, but everybody I’ve dealt with at Longhurst Group has been great and I can’t fault them.

“I recognise great service and they’re offering it. I just want to say thanks to everybody for this opportunity.”

The homes were bought by Longhurst Group as section 106 properties on a Cyden Homes development and were further enhanced to increase accessibility.
