Description:
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

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

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

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

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
