Room for assistants
A separate room for assistants improves privacy for the user and the assistants
On the lower floor of the house is a room for assistants with kitchenette, table and bed. The user has a wireless alarm to the assistants.
The house is planned so that the assistants only have to go up the stairway to reach the user’s bedroom. The user is extremely satisfied with the room, which improves privacy for him and for his wife, and even for the assistants.
