Client Name: Helen And Ben
Description:
Helen and Ben's Story Helen has had a series of medical complications that have affected her brain and central nervous system. She has been in and out of the hospital many times over the past year and has gone from being in a comatose state to regaining her thoughts and some movement. Now home, she is able to move around the house in an electric wheelchair. Her husband, Ben, is her primary caregiver and has not been able to get her in the shower for over a year due to the stall being raised and her limited mobility. The Solution Ben and Helen decided to give up some underutilized space in their master bathroom in exchange for accessibility. A barrier-free shower was installed in place of the soaker tub and raised shower stall. It included tempered glass panels to allow in natural light, grab bars and a hand-held shower. The toilet room was reconfigured to include… Read More

Client Name: Susan
Description:
Susan’s Story Susan has been legally blind since birth. She is unsteady when standing on one foot and has limited ability to raise her leg.

Client Name: Frank And Sandy
Description:
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… 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

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
