Sarah Floyd

Sarah has worked in multiple therapy settings throughout her training, internships and work experience. However, the majority of her working experience has been in the acute care setting, primarily with the Geriatric Population, as a Physical Therapist at Missouri Baptist Medical Center in St. Louis.

Her experience with patients in the hospital fueled her desire to find a way to help individuals to create a safer environment in their homes. After an elderly neighbor fell in his bath/shower combo when living alone, resulting in his demise, Sarah became passionate about reducing the risk of falls in the home and improving home safety, particularly for the elderly. Also, being on “the team” of professionals in the hospital who helped decide whether or not it was safe for a patient to return home versus being admitted into a rehab facility, it became very obvious that most people wanted to return to their homes, but could not because it was not physically safe for them to return home after their hospital stay. “Most people had homes that had a few steps to enter with no handrails, no ramps, no grab bars in the bathrooms, etc. Many had their bedrooms and a full bathroom on the second floor and their laundry rooms in the basement. It was not safe to send these people back to these inaccessible homes.”

A safer, more accessible design benefits everyone: Our customers range from young families who have children with disabilities, middle-aged individuals stricken with an illness or debilitating disease that affects their physical abilities, “sandwich” generation individuals caring for their elderly parents while raising their young children &  baby-boomers wanting to age in place in the comfort of their own homes.
