Special Needs #317


This week on HandyMa'am®, Bev, Chris and Angel look at ways a home can be adapted for various special needs. They install a personal hygiene cleansing system (portable bidet) that can be used to promote healing after surgery, as well as a tub bar to help you get in and out of the bath. They also visit the Chicago Botanic Garden's "enabling" garden and see how one person has adapted their home to address their special needs.
