Accessible Bathroom for Sgt.Petrone
Police Sergeant, Roger Petrone has been battling ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) since 2007. With the degenerative effects of ALS, Roger requires assistance when transferring from bed or a chair and depends on others for most or all personal hygiene tasks. Using the cramped bathroom in his old house became extremely dangerous for both Roger and his caregivers. Volunteer Architect, Andrew Robinson designed a new bathroom that is both safe and accessible.
Many volunteers and the generous donations of materials made this project possible, including the combined support from Greenwich Police Dept. colleagues, local Greenwich businesses and contractors, and Compassionate Care ALS.
