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

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: 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. She is independent with most of her self-care tasks but relies on her husband for help getting into and out of the tub. She expressed an acute fear of falling during our visit. The Solution After completing the home assessment, it was determined that removing the tub was critical for Susan to remain at home. A low-barrier shower was installed along with a handheld shower, grab bars and a flip-down shower seat. Susan no longer requires the assistance of her husband with showering… Read More

Client Name: Marilyn
Description:
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
