Home Modifications for Wheelchair Access
Wheelchairs are too wide for normal doorways and ramps are needed for climbing stairs. We can assist you in evaluating your space and making safety modifications.
Bathroom Safety Modifications
Bathrooms can harbor unforeseen dangers. Safety modifications should be made early to prevent accidents. Secure railings should be installed in the tub or shower for support. Additional bars and support should be added around the toilet to assist in making daily activities easier and safer. Making safety improvements to a bathroom can help to keep loved ones safe and stay independent longer.
Small Improvements Can Make a Big Difference
Not all home modifications are large, you may want to start by thinking small. Sometimes small improvements can make a big impact on someone’s daily routine. Just lowering light switches, moving furniture or updating appliances to safer or more efficient models can make a big difference.
