Joygiver: if you still want to reach Gillian, you should send her an email. The link is at the top of this page. Or you might want to have a certified bathroom designer who also has aging in place knowledge look at your plans. (I happen to be one.) And you could review the National Kitchen & Bath Assoc. guidelines for an accessible bath: http://www.empiredsr.com/NKBA%20Bath%20Planning%20Guidelines%20With%20Access%20Standards.pdf
