Description:
Jim and Kate's Story Jim and Kate's world changed one day when Jim was involved in an accident while riding home from a motorcycle trip, resulting in T6-7 paraplegia and two wrist fractures. While Jim was recovering in a rehab hospital, Kate knew that their story and 1/2 home would need some changes in order for Jim to maintain independence. The home assessment revealed steps at the garage and front door entries and a master bath that had an inaccessible soaker tub, shower, toilet room, vanity and closet. There was also thick pile carpeting in the master bedroom and bathroom that would create increased difficulty with wheelchair management if not removed. The Solution The carpet in the bedroom was replaced with hardwood flooring and the bathroom floor was replaced with tile. The space that housed the soaker tub and water closet was reconfigured to create a large barrier-free shower. The toilet was relocated along the outside wall of the shower with plenty of space to allow for easy transferring. A slope skirt vanity and accessible closet storage was added. Doorways were widened to the bathroom, closet… 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

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… 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
