BERWICK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Volunteers from Maine and New Hampshire are celebrating their home makeover for a 12-year old Berwick boy, who suffers from severe developmental disabilities.
Aidan Bowie has an undiagnosed neurological condition. He is non-verbal, has poor muscle tone and motor control issues. Because of safety concerns, he often had to be carried to the bathroom or his bedroom.
Thousands of dollars in skilled labor and building supplies have been donated to build the new wheelchair accessible living room, bedroom, and bathroom.
"It's life-changing," says Heather Bowie, Aidan's Mom.
The roof now covers Aidan's lift to get in and out of the house.
"Even little things like not shoveling a lift... That really will change our life. One little thing that will be easier for all of the other things that will always be more difficult."
Volunteers renovated the Bowie's home while Aidan underwent double hip surgery in March.
All gathered to celebrate the project on Sunday. Here a video of their journey in renovating the Bowie's house in Berwick.
