  2.  Lighting- well lit pathways, especially at night from bed to bathroom and in bathroom
  3.  Bed height - too short or too tall?
  4.  Does the client need help getting in/out of the bed?
  5.  Command Central- area next to bed well within easy reach for essential items: light, TV control, drink, phone
