George Oliphant catches up with two resilient swimming champions.
15-year-old Tas Pagonis, a lifelong swimmer who has recently gone blind, won’t let complete vision loss stop her from achieving her dreams. Even after a tragic accident left her paralyzed from the waist down, Olympic swimmer Amy Van Dyken-Rouen stays as strong and positive as ever. Being confined to a wheelchair, however, makes most of her house inaccessible to her, with stovetops, sinks, and cabinets just out of reach. No detail is too small in this rescue, as George and the team make several seemingly minor but impactful alterations to Amy’s kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and more to help reinforce a sense of independence to this inspiring woman, who is so much more than her handicap.
On ‘House Calls,’ George Oliphant reconnects with past rescuees in a series of video chats to see what they’re up to and how their life has changed since George to the Rescue paid them a visit. You won’t find these conversations anywhere else!
