Before and After : Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom

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

Bathroom Accessibility- Why a Wall-Mounted Toilet?

Bathroom Accessibility.png

The wall-mounted toilet offers three practical advantages:

  • Space savings: Wall-mounted toilets are a great choice for smaller bathrooms because the bowl and actuator plate are the only parts in the room. The outer tip of the bowl is up to 12 inches closer to the wall, which can make a huge difference in a small bathroom.

  • Easy cleaning: Because the toilet bowl doesn’t touch the floor, cleaning the area around the fixture is much easier.

  • Adjustable height: When installing a wall-mounted toilet, the remodeler can customize the height for the homeowner. This is especially helpful for people with mobility issues who might need a higher toilet.

Safety Home Modifications & Precautions for Parkinson's Patients

Just diagnosed?

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

  • Installing ramps

  • Widening doorways

  • 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
