An accident left a Wisconsin man paralyzed from the waist down, unable to work thus facing physical and financial challenges. After water damage in his basement completely drained his resources, this Chapter’s Foundation decided to finance and do the work desperately needed on his home’s only bathroom. Features focused on accessibility and included a barrier-free shower stall with a handheld shower and a bath seat; a comfort-height toilet; a mounted vanity with wheelchair access; and a new, wider door. It was extremely rewarding for NARI members to enable this man regain some independence of his own life.
