Home Accessibility with Blindness

    Susan’s Story
    Susan has been legally blind since birth. She is unsteady when standing on one foot and has limited ability to raise her leg. She is independent with most of her self-care tasks but relies on her husband for help getting into and out of the tub. She expressed an acute fear of falling during our visit.

    The Solution
    After completing the home assessment, it was determined that removing the tub was critical for Susan to remain at home. A low-barrier shower was installed along with a handheld shower, grab bars and a flip-down shower seat. Susan no longer requires the assistance of her husband with showering and her overall feeling of safety jumped from a 2-point rating to a 5.
