The mission of Room to Renew is to uplift, restore and rejuvenate those who have dedicated their time and energy to taking care of someone with a special need or illness. We do this through designing a room in their home to make it a personal, beautiful, functional and relaxing retreat.
We are excited to announce our 2017 design client!
Liz is a mother, a nurse, a wife and a friend to many who has dedicated the last nine years of her life to taking care of her son Trestin. At six months old Liz took guardianship of a very sick child in need of intensive care. They quickly learned Tristen had congenial heart disease, and over the last 9 years he has been hospitalized over 50 times. In addition to congenial heart disease Tristen also struggles with Asperger, FAS, OCD and ADHD as a result of drugs and alcohol in utero. Tristen has significant feeding issues and has had three abdominal surgeries to fix the regurgitation of food that goes into his lungs. Tristen is often tired and weak and can’t play at the speed of other little boys his age. Tristen’s mother Liz has championed his care, moving their home to be closer to better medical facilities, and working opposite shifts as her husband so someone is always available to be on call for him. Travel is often a challenge for caretakers, yet they need to rejuvenate and relax. We are so excited to work with Liz this year to create a room in her home that feels like a retreat and can’t wait to share the progress with you!
