ADA accessible bath remodels

We are getting more calls these days to make over bathrooms for elderly persons who may have had a stroke and can’t get around the same as before; or for a person struggling with a long term illness who could use some additional safety features and accessibility in their bathroom. 

This can be done with some very nice features and resulting an added value to the home.  Some of this is due to the general aging of our population, and our area probably is a desirable retirement area for those escaping from too much snow, too much heat or too much cold.  We have a very moderate climate, if you are ok with the rain!

Here are a few of the pictures for an ADA remodel:

These jobs may not be glamorous, but they give one a wonderful feeling of doing something to make life a little easier for someone who may be struggling right now.  Also, as can be seen from these photos, the remaking of a bathroom into an ADA accessible bath can be done with class.

Here is a link to a nice blog that is written about remodels in the entire house that will make it safer for the elderly: http://blog.mlive.com/grpress/2008/03/remodeling_gives_elderly_more.html
