Ruby is a part of the Aging Gracefully program at Community Housing Solutions where teams of occupational therapists and nurses work with homeowners like Ruby to assess needs and provide necessary accessibility modifications that will help them stay in their homes safely for more years. The biggest impact of this program is prevention, as modifications are made before falls occur.
Ruby wanted to soak in the bathtub without falling and to move safely in and out of her home. Community Housing Solutions’ installed three grab bars in her tub and replaced the rotting floors under her toilet. In addition, a concrete walkway was poured and rotten doors were replaced. These modifications made Ruby safe and stable as she carried out her daily activities.
“I love the program, and I love what they did,” said Ruby. “Community Housing Solutions cares. They showed me love and affection, and they helped me accomplish my goals. When you have someone who cares, that makes you feel good about yourself.”
