Description:
Robert and Marilyn’s Story Robert was hospitalized after a sudden episode of right-sided weakness. He was diagnosed as having a stroke and was left with right-sided hemiparesis. His primary mode of transport was a wheelchair. The onsite home assessment revealed the entry into the bathroom was too narrow, the toilet and shower area were both inaccessible, entry into the home was limited by stairs, and the carpeting throughout the home was too high to maneuver effectively. The Solution The existing bathroom was completely reconfigured into a barrier-free environment, including a barrier-free shower, accessible toilet area, and a wider bathroom door. Robert was able to maneuver in the bathroom and complete his showering and toileting tasks with the assistance of a caregiver. A ramp was installed at the front entrance and carpeting was replaced with a low pile option. The goal of returning home was achieved for Robert and his family once the home was adapted to… Read More

Jessica's Story Jessica has a progressive neuromuscular disorder, Charcot Marie Tooth syndrome. Overtime, she has lost hand function, the use of both of her legs and uses an electric wheelchair for mobility.  She lives alone in a single-level accessible home but was finding the bathroom more challenging to navigate.  The placement of the bathtub in proximity to the toilet was creating increased difficulty with her lateral transfers and her ability to complete bathing and toileting tasks.  Jessica, now in her 50's lives alone, works, and is very independent.  She is adamant about being able to continue to live in her home and care for herself, but it was becoming more physically taxing and unsafe to carry out daily routines. The Solution The LifeWise team got together with Jessica and her brother, who lives in California, to design a bathroom that would work for her. The bathroom door was widened and replaced with a sliding pocket door. The bathtub was replaced with a barrier-free shower and a wall mounted shower seat. Both stationary and a flip down grab bars were strategically located to enable Jessica to use her upper body muscles to pull herself during lateral transfers. The toilet was replaced with a Toto hands-free toilet that has… Read More

Frank and Sandy's Story Frank and Sandy are in their seventies. They are active, require no assistance with their daily routines and reside in their lifetime home. Knowing life can change in a moment, they wanted to make changes to their home that will allow them to remain there no matter the circumstance. They contacted LifeWise to help them design and implement a bathroom revision that would work for them, for many years to come. The Solution A barrier-free shower was designed and installed to eliminate the step into their previous shower. Features that allow for flexibility in use were installed, such as a shower seat (see "After" picture) that can be used from a sitting position to complete bathing tasks or easily moved out of the way when standing to shower. The showerhead on a slide bar can be used when sitting or standing and is also very helpful when cleaning the shower. Grab bars were installed to ensure greater safety when going from sitting to standing and bending up and down within the shower. A functional, easy-to-reach shower caddy was built into… Read More

Virginia’s Story Virginia has severe dementia and was living in a nursing facility. Her son was determined to bring her home. Virginia requires assistance with all self-care tasks including bathing and toileting. She can walk short distances with assistance and uses a transport chair inside her apartment for longer distances. She is unable to go up and down stairs. Virginia lives in a single level apartment with her son and a family caregiver. The tub/shower in the bathroom was on a platform constructed two steps above the floor level. There was a large post in the middle of the room limiting access. Unable to access the bathtub, the family set a shower chair in the middle of the room where she was given sponge baths. The Solution In order for Virginia to bathe, a low-barrier shower with a handheld was installed and the post was removed. A rolling shower chair was also purchased. The chair allowed the family to transport her directly from the bedroom to the bathroom while eliminating the need for an additional transfer. Virginia no longer requires 2 people to bathe her and she loves being able to get in the shower. The family’s overall feeling of safety and ability to function jumped 4 points from a 1 to a 5. About LifeWise Renovations A low-barrier shower with a handheld shower was installed and the post was removed. A rolling shower chair was also… Read More

Robin and Kevin's Story Robin was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease and as her condition progressed, it became increasingly difficult for the family and caregivers to get her in the shower. Over 3 months passed without being able to successfully bathe her and it was becoming clear that Robin’s wish of wanting to remain in the home was becoming less realistic with time. The initial home assessment revealed a small shower enclosure that was the source of much angst with the showering process as behavioral outbursts were common for her during this time.  It also revealed a toilet in close proximity to the shower. The Solution The existing bathroom was redesigned to create a shower room free of the barriers that were inhibiting her tasks before. The shower room also was also outfitted with a toilet that enabled the caregivers to transfer… Read More
