The Desire to Age-in-Place Despite an Uncertain Future
Remodeling their home became the best choice for Mike and Ann Schroeder after examining the
alternatives and the feasibility of alternative housing. Mike has a degenerative nerve disease that progressively
affects mobility. As his wife Ann told Accessibility Design when the project began, "We're not old, we're disabled.
We're continuing to live our lives, but how do we do that?" The uncertainty of a prognosis is the biggest challenge
in designing for a person with a degenerative disease. With experience in flexible design, Accessibility Design was
able to provide a solution that offered options for the future.
A progressive neurological disease was robbing Mike of the ability to get around the house. So creating an accessible area in our home and planning for the future was a must. Little did we know that Accessibility Design would guide us through the process and help us develop a safe and beautiful home where Mike can live independently as long as possible. Many thanks for our amazing new world!
