Caring for Tor- An intimate look at the life of a young caregiver

Stephane Alexis, 24, has put his own goals and aspirations on hold to help his parents care for his younger brother Torence, who has cerebral palsy. Young caregivers are an often-overlooked population - too tired from the day-to-day to advocate for more resources and support.

As a family with a loved one with disabilities, we like to bring awareness to the disability community and their caregivers.

This short, 8 minute documentary is raw, unfiltered reality of the life of Tor and his caregivers.

Recently, young caregivers are being recognized for their roles as caregivers in their families.

Let us know what you think below.

Accessibility & Technology: Microsoft Xbox Adaptive Controllers

Technology is working alongside Accessibility more than ever.

Microsoft is coming out with adaptive Xbox controllers and we are all excited!

Watch the video bellow to see all the attachments you can use...

Designed primarily to meet the needs of gamers with limited mobility, the Xbox Adaptive Controller is a unified hub for devices that help make gaming more accessible. Connect external devices such as switches, buttons, mounts, and joysticks to create a custom controller experience that is uniquely yours.

Click here to go to Microsoft Xbox website.

 

According to Microsoft Story Labs page

" The new Xbox Adaptive Controller, which will be available later this year, can be connected to external buttons, switches, joysticks and mounts, giving gamers with a wide range of physical disabilities the ability to customize their setups. The most flexible adaptive controller made by a major gaming company, the device can be used to play Xbox One and Windows 10 PC games and supports Xbox Wireless Controller features such as button remapping. "
microsoftxboxadaptivecontrollers.jpg

There is a group of gamers who have tested these controllers. One of the gamers, Dan Bertholomey, is excited for the endless possibilities the controllers have. He now plans on competing again in eSports! 

Another gamer, Solomon Romney said,

"I can customize how I interface with the Xbox Adaptive Controller to whatever I want. If I want to play a game entirely with my feet, I can. I can make the controls fit my body, my desires, and I can change them anytime I want. You plug in whatever you want and go. It takes virtually no time to set it up and use it. It could not be simpler. I get to redesign my controller every day and get to choose how I want to play, Romney said. For me, that's the greatest thing ever." 

There is so much more to read and learn about the Xbox adaptive controllers.

I am very excited but really I am happy this FINALLY exists. Inclusivity matters. Sofia was thinking the same thing as me, It's about time!

Would you use these controllers? Have you made your own adaptive controller?

Transformation Tuesday- Roll in Shower

Happy Tuesday!

Today I want to show you how we transformed a small, cramped bathroom into a spacious roll in shower. 

Click on the slideshow below to see this weeks Transformation ...

The purpose of a roll in shower is essentially that there are NO barriers. It is an open layout design. 

Notice in the images above that there is a drain in the shower. Where the drain is, there is a slight slope, which allows the water to flow directly into the drain and keep the rest of the bathroom floor dry.

Other equipment shown are the grab bars and ADA toilet. There is a standard grab bar by the toilet as well as a flip grab bar. This gives our client the help she needs to transition to and from the toilet. Lastly, an ADA height toilet makes all of the difference. These toilets are higher than standard toilets, which helps our client significantly.

Remember, all of these modifications are made to improve our clients quality of life. An ADA home gives our clients INDEPENDENCE to do as much as they can at home, and to STAY at home.
