Designing Spaces airing on Lifetime Network, a women-focused home improvement show that airs segments on remodeling, redesigning, and redefining homes, debuted an episode on October 27, 2017, focusing on upgrades that can help seniors live safely and comfortably in their home.
The episode features experts from Comfort Keepers, who provide insights and advice that help a retired Florida couple make their home work for them.
The “Aging In Place Makeover” episode of Designing Spaces was filmed in Tequesta, Florida, a suburb of West Palm Beach. The show visits the home of Marianne and John Nicholas, a couple looking for solutions that will allow John, 82, to feel safe leaving Marianne, 79, at home alone after suffering a debilitating fall in the previous year.
Additionally, John and Marianne learn about respite care services available from Comfort Keepers that would offer John the ability to reengage with friends and his lifelong pursuit of golfing, which he dropped after Marianne’s accident.
Comfort Keepers services allow family caregivers to take a break from caregiving so that they have time to run errands, meet with friends and family, pursue hobbies and get some much-deserved alone time. This helps them be a good caregiver for their loved one while continuing to enjoy a high quality of life.
