How to Keep a House Looking Like a Home and Not a Hospital
Steve Weaver, National Seating & Mobility
BSBA, CLIPP, UDCP, CEAC, CAPS, HATS
Upon completion of the presentation, our members will be able to:
- Appreciate the benefit of the “Trifecta” of using an occupational therapist and designer in conjunction with a licensed contractor familiar with accessibility for all home modifications and how the team will be beneficial to the client
- Imagine solutions for their clients that include existing options for making homes safe and accessible
- Embrace that some “luxury” items are ideal for enabling an individual
- Evaluate simple- to high-end, aesthetic solutions and discuss those options with their client
- Identify options for further training, experience, and like-minded contacts in making homes accessible
Steve Weaver is an accessibility nerd! He has fully immersed himself into the world of finding the most appropriate solution for his clients who want to live in their own home regardless of their age or abilities. His passion for doing so was initiated from his daughter’s journey with Cerebral Palsy as well as helping his parents age as gracefully as possible. He started EASE (Eagle Accessibility Solutions & Equipment, Inc.) in 2003 to serve the community in a meaningful way, offering clients Dignity, Opportunity, and Respect™.
Winning awards as National Contractor of the Year (2020) for Universal Design through NARI, and both “Homes for Life” awards through NAHB in 2021 for Bath Remodel and Overall Best CAPS Design, helps identify EASE as committed to doing the job well, undoubtedly one of the many reasons National Seating & Mobility acquired the business in the summer of 2021. In addition to his BS in Business Administration, continuing education and certification has led to CLIPP, CEAC, UDCP, and CAPS designations. Prior to EASE, Steve worked as a firefighter for the state and a manager at Apple Computer, Inc. Steve is also a Living In Place Institute Ambassador.
Recognizing that Steve has God-given abilities to write and speak well, he is dynamic in both disciplines. He comes alive and his enthusiasm is contagious when speaking and presentation about the things he knows so well – making homes accessible, advocating for others, loving and caring for someone with disabilities, and even the tough stuff, especially when someone passes. It is on this last issue that Steve’s ability to speak from his heart and answer any question is helpful to intimate gatherings of a few to hundreds of people attending conferences.
