Elderly Couple to Find Solace With Handicap-Accessible Bathroom

Luxury Bath and Habitat for Humanity Spokane Build Home With Custom Shower for Spokane Couple

SPOKANE VALLEY, WA--(Marketwire - May 19, 2010) -  Luxury Bath of Spokane teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to bring independence and comfort back to a Spokane couple.

Kim and her husband have been living in an apartment that has become too difficult to maneuver in. Kim has severe diabetes and is restrained to a walker; the doorways are too narrow for her to make it through. Her husband is 70 years old and making it into their bathroom tub is a near-impossible feat. The couple needed help, but couldn't help themselves due to their poor financial situation. That's when they found Habitat for Humanity.

Habitat began building the home at 1208 North Helena on March 1st and will hand the keys over on June, 25th, 2010. They have received a lot of support from businesses throughout the Spokane community; including Luxury Bath of Spokane. In about one day, Luxury Bath converted their bath into a walk-in shower with a custom-designed shower pan to be flush with the floor. The system also is complete with safety grab bars and a pole mounted shower head, making the shower approved and certified as an ADA medical device.

"I am so thankful to Habitat for answering our prayers. They are building a home that I can get around in with my walker, and we want to thank Luxury Bath for their generosity. The accessible roll-in shower will bring me peace every day!" said Kim.

Habitat for Humanity builds a home with the support of community partners, like Luxury Bath, who donate materials, labor and money. "These gifts from our community partners are making Spokane a better place by providing more affordable homeownership opportunities to our working low income community," said Michone Preston, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity Spokane.
