Case Study: Fix

Agewise Design renovated a main floor bedroom and bathroom for Debbie after she could no longer manage her stair lift to get to her upstairs master bedroom and bathroom.

A wife and mother of three, Debbie is living Multiple Sclerosis, which has advanced to the point that she can only move her right arm. When her husband contacted us, Debbie was being cared for by her family and a caregiver. They used a Hoyer Lift to transfer her on and off her bed, her recliner, her wheel chair, the toilet and bench in the tub/shower.

Agewise Design specified an overhead track system with a sling and electric hoist linking the bedroom, bathroom, and family room so that Debbie could be lifted easily out of bed, taken into the bathroom, or into the family room. The bathroom features a sink with access underneath for her legs, a touch-faucet on the right side, and lots of storage; a comfort height toilet with bidet seat, and a flip-up grab bar for stability; a roll in shower with a five-foot radius carved out of space taken from the bedroom closet. Through a second set of double pocket doors, Debbie can be transferred to her recliner or wheelchair in the family room.
