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

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

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

Description:
John's Story John has progressive muscular dystrophy. He is a total care individual who requires a total lift for transfers. John’s bathroom has a tub/shower. He had been using a sliding lift chair to access the tub. The lift chair was unable to provide enough clearance for safe transfers, and the other family members were unable to remove it for showering. The home has several different threshold heights between rooms, making it difficult for John to maneuver from room to room. The Solution A low-barrier shower with a handheld shower and grab bars were installed. John is now transferred to his rolling commode/shower chair which has significantly increased everyone’s safety while showering. Rubber threshold ramps were also installed throughout the house to make… Read More

Description:
Amy's Story Amy is a 38-year-old female with cerebral palsy living with her mother and grandmother. She is dependent for all her care including feeding, bathing and dressing. For transfers, Amy requires the assistance of two people. Amy’s living quarters are on the third level of the home. The family installed a stair lift several years ago, but Amy must be carried from the lift to her bedroom and bathroom. She uses a semi-reclining shower chair for bathing, then dresses in her bedroom. This task has become increasingly difficult for her family to manage as she has gotten bigger. The Solution A continuous track ceiling lift was installed at the third level. The track begins in the hall to transport Amy from the stair lift to her bedroom and bathroom. The bathroom doors were not widened as amy’s family chose the ceiling lift in lieu of a low-barrier shower and shower chair. Soaking in the bathtub has a huge calming effect on Amy that her mother was reluctant to lose. Accessing her bed and tub are now much easier. The… Read More
