I was wondering what would be your dream home if money were not object, in terms of making living with MS as easy as possible…
I’d love a spacious house with large doorways to each room so that wheelchair movement is easy, room for guests (family friend visits). Network wiring to all rooms so that smart devices can be used throughout (I have a Nest thermostat and it’s so convenient being able to deal with the heating from my phone, would love the same on other stuff such as lights, smoke alarms etc. so I can do stuff around the house without relying on my wife). Motorised chairs in the living room, a bed with motorised lifting (ala hospital bed), to get in and out on my own while I can. Spacious wet room obviously, w/ waterproof wheelchair. Hoists near wet room, bed and living area for transfers to common areas. Ramps for getting in and out of the house. A lift so that I can transfer between floors and an annex so that we could use a live in carer when my wife needs a break. A garage to store mobility scooter (and a hoist for that too). And if I’m being really unrealistic a gym with some physio aiding exercise machines (AlterG treadmill for example).
All of this while it being done that doesn’t obstruct use of the house for my wife and kids, so that they live with me, not around me (therefore can’t be in the middle of nowhere as need schools and access to amenities).
Ah well, too bad I’m not a millionaire… a man can dream right.
