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

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

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

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

Description:
Jay’s Story Jay was in a diving accident in his 20's that resulted in high-level quadriplegia.  He is now in his 30’s and ready to buy a new home, but was experiencing difficulty finding a place suited to his needs.  After much searching, he found something that met the majority of his needs with the exception of the bathroom. The entry door was too narrow and the shower would not accommodate his shower chair and the added assistance of caregivers.  LifeWise was contacted prior to the purchase of the home to determine what, if any, changes could be made to the bathroom to make it accessible. The Solution The existing bathroom was configured into a wet room that allowed for Jay to successfully shower with his chair and the assistance of caregivers. Prior to starting, the design was visually laid out for Jay to… Read More
