Happy Friday! What do you think about this before and after wheelchair accessible bathroom from our #Newport project? We went with the classic grey to keep with the traditional feel of the home. Do you lean towards beige or grey? We lean towards greige 😉 📷: @BFAllc
Many adaptations can be made to the home to make it easier for a person living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) to get around and maintain their daily activities. One of the best resources for assessing and making recommendations for home adaptations is an occupational therapist. They are licensed healthcare professionals that are focused on enabling their patients to engage in daily activities as seamlessly as possible. One of the ways occupational therapists do this is through suggesting adaptations or modifications to the person’s environment.
Home adaptations for people with PD range from small changes to major building changes requiring construction. Adaptations to the home may include:
Adding rails to doorways or stairs
Creating half steps to make large steps smaller
Removing or leveling threshold strips between rooms
Adding stair lifts
Replacing a bath with a walk-in shower
Installing a tub transfer bench
Adding shower chairs
Mounting bars or handrails in tubs, showers or near the toilet
Placing non-skid rubber bath mats in showers or tubs
Installing a raised toilet seat or commode frame
Switching out faucets to those that are easier to grasp or those that only require a touch to turn on
Inserting chair or bed raisers
Adding a handle or bed rail for getting out of bed
Adding a motion-activated nightlight
Wet rooms are particularly good for those whose motion is restricted, such as the senior or a person with disability. There is no demand for a shower tray, making access to the shower much easier.

This simple, one day installation made a world of difference for a Senior in West Bloomfield, MI. The original request was for a ramp- but with 24” of rise, that would mean their entire garage was taken up with a winding ramp. They felt confident that they were making the right decision in working with us to get their lift!
Thank you #BFA,llc Team for all your work today on completing this project. ✨👏🏻
