Handicapped Room

Hi! MY NAME IS JEREMY AND I AM 21 YEARS OLD. I JUST GRADUATED FROM HIGHSCHOOL AND i ATTEND COLLEGE AT CENTRAL CAROLINA COMMUNITY COLLEGE. I AM DIAGNOSED WITH SPASTIC QUADRIPLEGIA CEREBRAL PAULSY AND ONLY HAVE ONE WORKING EAR DRUM.  I  USE A POWER WHEELCHAIR TO GET AROUND EVERYWHERE I GO.  I AM CURRENTLY ON A FEEDING TUBE  SO I CAN GAIN WEIGHT. I HAD  MAJOR BACK SURGURY AND LOST 40 POUNDS. I NEEDED TO BE PUT ON A FEEDING TUBE TO GAIN MY WEIGHT BACK.  I AM STILL WORKING ON GAINING THE WEIGHT BUT NOW I DONT FIT IN MY BATHROOM/TUB. I HAVE TO BE CARRIED INTO THE BATHROOM AND PUT ON A SPECIAL CHAIR TO TAKE A SHOWER.  IM GETTING TO  HEAVY TO BE PICKED UP LIKE THAT.  THE CHAIR TAKES UP THE WHOLE TUB AND I HIT MY FEET ON THE SPOUT ALL THE TIME.  I CANNOT PUT THE EQUIPMENT ON THE TOILET THAT I NEED SO I CAN SIT BECAUSE OF THE TOILET TANK. ALL OF IT NEEDS TO BE MODIFIED.  THE BATHROOM IS SO NARROW I CANNOT BE PICKED UP EASILY TO GET ME OUT OF THERE ONCE I'M IN THERE.  IT IS HARD FOR THE PEOPLE THAT TAKE CARE OF ME  TO GET ME IN AND OUT SAFELY.  WE HAVE STARTED AN ADDITION TO OUR HOUSE TO ADD ON TO MY BEDROOM. OUR GOAL IS TO HAVE A HANDICAP SHOWER AND TOILET INSTALLED IN THE ADDITION ALONG WITH A LIFT IN THE CEILING SO I CAN BE LIFTED SAFELY AND EASILY FROM THE BED TO THE SHOWER OR INTO MY CHAIR.  IT WOULD MAKE THINGS MORE ACCESSABLE FOR ME AND MAKE IT EASIER FOR EVERYONE  TO HELP ME WITHOUT HURTING ME. THE ADDITION WILL ALSO HAVE AN ELECTRONIC DOOR INSTALLED SO I CAN GET IN AND OUT OF THE HOUSE  WITH EASE. ONE OF THE HOUSES DOWN THE ROAD JUST CAUGHT ON FIRE AND BURNED TO THE GROUND. IN AN EMERGENCY I NEED TO BE ABLE TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE, JUST IN CASE.   I REALLY NEED YOUR HELP TO ACHIEVE THIS GOAL. I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU  TO EVERYONE FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP.
