Make Life Easier Around Your House With These Tips

General contractor and master home problem solver Bob Kantner has great tips to share with you that will make day-to-day activities around your home just that much easier. Take a look at the videos he has created for our Reeve Health Minute series.

Bob has been building things since he was a boy and has been constructing high-end houses since 1968. He fell through the roof of his hangar and sustained a T5 spinal cord injury in 2004. He's put his skills to use adapting his house, car, and airplane so that he can be as independent as possible and keep doing all the things he loves.

He has great ideas for smart ways you can adapt your home and car without spending a lot of money that will make your life safer and easier.

The Reeve Health Minute is an ongoing series of actionable tips for individuals living with paralysis to help them improve their health and wellness. The Reeve Health Minute is written and reported by Gary Karp and Kristin McNealus.  You can watch and read more here.

BridgetB Today is the 8-year anniversary of our daughter's stroke. Brooke has been an outpatient at Frazier ever since. We've had many wonderful therapists over the years, all of whom helped contribute to her progress as she's grown into the happy little nine-year-old she is today. To celebrate her progress, Brooke and I completed the 5K Mud Stampede today! We made shirts to wear, and the back of hers read, "A stroke couldn't stop me. Don't let anything stop you!"

jasonhundley Even though there are van accessible handicapped spaces, anyone with a handicapped parking sticker is allowed to park in them. This makes it very hard for me and others who are bound to a wheelchair to find a parking space. Please sign my petition to make van accessible parking spaces designated for ramp and lift vans only. Go to the link to sign.

nyah when i first got to Frazier i could barely move and my left arm was still paralyzed. by the time i left the therapists had taught me how to take care of myself and my two children. all the staff was like second family. everyone from the therapist to the kitchen staff to the social workers were like second family. i would not suggest any other place but frazier for rehabilitation.

William I would like to meet the Frazier graduates, no matter how young or old, in my area. Can you help me? What is my FofF member number? This site is a whole bunch easier than at the start, and your "ease-of-use" focus could possible attract more graduates for me to meet/talk-to. Thank You Frazier

FrazierAdmin Thanks so much for your comment and your interest. It is our hope that current and former Frazier patients will use this site, and especially the discussion group page, to talk and get to know each other “virtually.” In the future, if there is interest, it is possible that get-together’s or events could be organized where folks can meet in person. Thanks for the suggestion.
