Case Study Specific to Parkinson’s Disease

    Tim and Lisa’s Story
    Tim has early onset Parkinson’s disease with progressive mobility issues. The home, while on one level, had an inaccessible shower and toilet area. The thick pile carpet throughout had become a trip hazard with Tim’s gait issues. Lisa, his wife, was concerned about the inaccessible laundry area, insufficient access to the closet, poor storage and safety with bathing.

    The Solution
    In meeting with Tim and Lisa, it was determined that the current space did not meet their needs. The existing office space was now underutilized in their retirement. Capturing that space allowed us to create a large walk-in shower, accessible toilet area and more storage. The existing master bath was reconfigured to become an accessible laundry area. A steam shower and heated floors were added to help with joint discomfort the couple was experiencing. The toilet was replaced with a Toto hands-free toilet that has a bidet feature to assist in toileting tasks. These changes have helped Tim maintain his independence and made the house more functionally sound in a way that works for them.
