Client Name: Virginia
Description:
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

Client Name: Jim And Kate
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

Client Name: Lisa
Description:
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

Client Name: Terry And Maria
Description:
Terry and Maria’s Story Terry has had diabetes for over 20 years. As a result of the disease, he developed difficulty with circulation and lower extremity sensation. He eventually had to have his right leg amputated and not too long after that, suffered a spinal cord stroke. The family lives in a two-story home and Terry was not able to get up and down the stairs. As a result, the family decided it was best to convert the main-level into an area where Terry could reside.  The Solution By capturing some space from the kitchen, the existing half bath was redesigned to create a full bath. A wheelchair accessible shower was installed and included a wall mounted shower seat and grab bars. Increased lighting was added to help with Terry’s visual issues. The existing toilet was replaced with a Toto toilet, which includes a bidet feature, making it easier to complete toileting activities independently. The dining room was converted into a master bedroom and hardwood floors were installed throughout. Once Terry returned home from rehab, he was able to manage… Read More

Client Name: Linda
Description:
Linda and Ben's Story Linda has osteoarthritis which has resulted in decreased stability with her mobility. Linda and Ben live in a multi-level home with several sets of stairs that have low lighting and handrails on one side. Unfortunately, Linda has experienced several falls that have led to knee problems, a right shoulder injury causing a limited range of motion, and decreased grip in both hands. One of the areas of concern was the bathroom, due to a combination tub/shower with a sliding glass enclosure and a low toilet, which made it difficult to go from a sitting to standing position. Knowing that OA can be a progressive disease, Linda and Ben needed a solution to ensure a safe environment for the long term. The Solution LifeWise assisted Linda and Ben in choosing renovations that provided increased home accessibility for the changes she was experiencing. Due to the frequency in which Linda was falling, the bathtub was replaced with a barrier-free shower. A fold down seat was also installed, so Linda could sit down while… Read More
