It is disturbing that senior citizens and those with mobility challenges can expect to find more significant struggles searching for inclusive housing. However, there is a growing trend towards home modifications for seniors and those with physical limitations.
Many of the most significant barriers to independence and safety for mobility challenged people are centred in the home. By modifying an existing home, the person needing extra help will be able to stay in their home and have the independence they crave.
Our refurbishing of homes is not just for the elderly citizens, AccessAble Home Modifications, we are pleased to work with grants for home modifications for the disabled.
The General Modifications We Offer
Entryways and doorways are frequent challenges for those who depend on wheelchairs. Limited mobility keeps those with challenges stuck at home and makes regular outings nearly impossible. Our team can use the latest techniques to offer home-bound freedom and safety.
While handrails are a well-known safety feature in the bathroom, we install them in various locations around the house. Since they do not require much space, we can install handrails wherever extra leverage or balance is helpful.
While extremely helpful, grab bars must be installed correctly at the appropriate angle as well as in the right way to support its user’s weight safely. Additionally, considering the user’s height and other physical limitations is vital for grab bars to be safe and effective.
If you have ever struggled to get a walker or wheelchair through a doorway, you can understand how essential ramps can be for ensuring safe and smooth mobility. Not only do the ramps need to be quite durable, but they also need to be installed at the correct grade for them to be helpful.
