Practical Assisted Living Structure Basic Floor Plan 2

Practical Assisted Living Structures (PALS) modules, comprising a full handicap-modified bathroom, a full bedroom and various storage closet accommodations, are readily adaptable to a variety of home styles and layouts. The floor plan below presents a module that is entered from the end. The entryway in this depiction is adjacent to the bathroom on the wall that would be affixed to the host home. A doorway to the exterior, located opposite the foot of the bed in this depiction, would typically provide access to a deck as well as a means of external egress. The deck would be built to accommodate the needs of the user, e.g. if a user were wheelchair bound, the deck would be accessed by means of a ramp rather than by stairs.
