Six degrees of separation; yes, it is funny sometimes how people become acquainted.
A recent reader of our articles goes by the handle, John Judge.
John introduced himself to me through a few postings I had made on a Notre Dame fan web site.
John indicated he liked our site but wished that we had more articles on assisted living in the home which would be useful to many as our population ages.
John, this one’s for you.
Our oldest daughter is a special needs person. To help accomodate her needs we purchased and renovated our current home. There were several areas of her bathroom which were renovated to accommodate her needs, including the sink.
If you notice in the above picture the sink hangs off the wall with sufficient room underneath for a wheel chair or walker.
Look at the faucet. It is an automatic faucet from Moen.
I got the idea from the washrooms in hotels and airports. Many of them have automatic faucets, so why not install one in a room where the mere act of turning on and off a faucet is hard for the person, or where the person may forget to turn one completely off when finished.
Now, I will be the first to tell you that these are not cheap by any means. The one we purchased, after looking for quite some time, cost us around $400. I know.
We had the installation such that it would use batteries rather than being connected to the electric wires in our home.
It looks pretty nice, don’t you think?
But what if it stops working? How does one fix it?
Well, that happened to us recently. I was out of town and my wife told me that it stopped working and how she fixed it.
We’ll let you know about that tomorrow.
