Wheelchair Accessible Home For ALS Veteran

Designing a Wheelchair Accessible Home

For the past year, Larry Harms has chosen to prepare his home to accommodate his FUTURE accessibility needs.  The key word is FUTURE. He was diagnosed with ALS, and not that learning this was easy, yet he has accepted the diagnosis and with acceptance comes change.  He has taken multiple steps to plan for the ‘when’, when he needs a power chair, when he needs access into his home, when he needs a bathroom that will fit a power chair, when he needs to get downstairs, when he needs to go outside to enjoy the outdoors and when he needs support from the community.

Larry is a very special man, husband, father, grandfather and friend.  We invite you to meet Larry and hear from him how he has chosen to plan for his FUTURE, WHEN, he will need accessibility in his home.
