Jim was also diagnosed with ALS a little over a year ago. Jim is a young man and he and his wife Elaine have two young children. At this stage in their lives, with children to raise and educate, resources were more limited regarding any major home additions.
We worked with Jim, Elaine and the Occupational Therapist to develop and design a sensible way to create first-floor living for Jim. In their traditional two-story, we turned the first floor powder room into an accessible bathroom and the front living room into Jim’s bedroom.
Despite the necessary concessions and more difficult design, the changes to Jim and Elaine’s home have proven to be a blessing to the entire family.
