We were contacted to assess the home of a veteran who is cared for by his spouse. The spouse was having difficulty assisting the veteran into/out of their tub safely due to decreasing mobility. The veteran uses a walker for mobility and the doorways were too narrow to allow safe passage without turning. With the progressive nature of his disease, the spouse was looking for options to provide her spouse safe accessibility now and into the future.
Due to resources available, we suggested the Clean Cut Tub Cut Out. We installed this system for the veteran's bathtub and 3 grab bars to provide safe accessibility to enter and exit the bathtub and toilet areas with the assistance of his spouse. In addition to this, we widened the doorways to the bathroom and the veteran's bedroom, to allow him to use his walker safely while accessing necessary areas of his home.
