Every Little Girls Dream...a princess bed, a bubble tub and a way to use them safely...
Making sure Amber has the same opportunities as her sisters is a priority for her parents despite the unique challenges she faces. This includes participating in school and extra curricular activities...but most especially at home where family unity and togetherness is paramount.
Amber is a sweet and happy 7 year old girl who is a true miracle and blessing to her family. She enjoys spending her time with her 2 older sisters and her many, many friends. Amber was born with a condition that affected her brain. Because of this, she requires 24 hour care and uses a wheelchair for mobility.
Lifting and carrying Amber as a baby and toddler was easy, but as Amber continued to grow it became difficult for caregivers…especially for her mother who recently sustained a back injury. Family togetherness was becoming encumbered and the ease of caregiving much more difficult.
Her parents knew that their home wasn’t “working”, but were unsure of what to do to address these difficulties and barriers within the home. They really wanted her to be able to move more freely and safely throughout the entire home …and still provide a cute, fun, little girl atmosphere. They turned to Accessibility Design for help.
After encountering restrictions to increasing the footprint (size) of the home, Accessibility Design proposed a new design and space plan that enhanced the home’s beauty and added access solutions without adding additional square feet. Knowing that creative space planning is the foundation of all great home access projects, Accessibility Design used their expertise and skills to guide the family toward a solution that allowed flexibility for the future and thus met both the current and future needs of Amber and her family.
Accessibility Design's solution included:
The modifications were integrated so wonderfully that the beauty is what people remember and togetherness is what we enjoy.
