Chat Transcript

12:04:13     From  Steve Gurney - ProAging Community : https://aginghere.com/

12:10:39     From  mary busse   to   Hosts and panelists : am I the only one who find Yves' audio a little hard to hear.?

12:10:54     From  Louis Tenenbaum : No surprise this is a great conversation, Steve.

12:12:24     From  richard duncan   to   Hosts and panelists : this guy is a Granberg dealer?

12:25:12     From  Steve Gurney - ProAging Community : This is so awesome, creative! My renovation of a 3-generation, handicap-friendly (ADA on first floor only) rental home. I plan to have all lower kitchen cabinets as easily sliding drawers on tracks, not as regular shelves, and upper cabinets as regular type, with shelves. I plan to have some of kitchen counter at lower ADA height, and part of counter at standard height. Plan to have only cabinet doors in front of kitchen sink, so wheelchaired person can go under sink to do own dishes. Higher bottoms of lower cabinets, for the feet of wheelchaired person to go under.   John Hinkle Financial Services.

12:25:56     From  Louis Tenenbaum : My daughter is 4’-10” she always uses the lower countertops in our kitchen. In particular a lower counter helps anyone to get leverage for rolling pie shells and kneading dough.

12:26:26     From  Joan Zaffarano   to   Hosts and panelists : How can we be assured that replacement parts will be available?  What happens if this company goes out of business?

12:26:56     From  Melissa Bressler : I'm 4'9" and there will come a day I won't be able to use a step stool. I have one handy in each room of my home.

12:28:05     From  Louis Tenenbaum : I also once built a moving vanity for a vet who was a double amputee. When on his prosthesis he was over 6” tall. When using a wheelchair he was much lower.
