Why Pompe Disease? 

Recently, Aging In Place Builders had the privilege of building a fully accessible bedroom/bathroom addition for a fantastic client with Pompe Disease. Although we have helped many clients with various illnesses or diseases, this was the first time we had encountered Pompe Disease. One of the very first steps we take with any client is to discuss the current and future health situation - What health problem do you currently have? Will things get worse and how long do we have?
