Any alterations on your home?
I am just curious as to what if any alterations any of you had to make or will make to care for a relation in your home. I know I had my dad fix a rail to grab for mom to get in and out of her bed, luckily they had those Craftmatic electric beds, plus I loaned them a bath bench so she could sit in the shower. He bought her, with my advice, an automatic recliner. Must admit she hated it!!
Dad did okay, as his was loss of memory mainly.
As you all know, our houses are always being altered. A Wheelchair is not something you have in your home without changing things. Special bed, hoyer to get him in and out of bed/chair, wide doorways, ramps on all elevated steps (in this house just the porch) Now we have the wheelchair bathroom and wheelchair shower, and sink.
The way things are going these days, our daughters told us when we are gone, and they have to sell the house that may be a big selling point. LOL So many families do have someone to care for nowadays, it would help.
Just a small list of our needs, there are way more, too many to list.
