Poll: Are You a Real Techie?

A Winning Bath

Mary Waggoner's parents, Clarence and Louise, had moved from their Montana home to Snohomish, Wash., to be close to their daughter. Louise has Parkinson's disease, and Clarence, whose vision is failing, gets around with a cane and walker. The couple live in adult-care facility on weekdays, and on weekends Mary cares for them in her home. About a year ago, when Louise could no longer safely get out of her wheelchair to navigate Mary's cramped bathroom, it looked as if the weekend visits would have to end. Then Mary won AARP’s Room Makeover Contest, and a team of universal design and aging-in-place specialists got to work and created a bathroom that is not only beautiful and personalized, but meets her parents' needs.

Meet the Waggoners, and see the bath’s remodel in the video and slide show above.
