As cities and states have begun the process of easing recommendations to stay at home and lifting public restrictions related to social distancing, many people across the country are taking advantage of returning to some of their normal routines as safely as possible. For those living with mobility challenges, Amramp is here to help ensure that getting into and out of your home can be done with ease and independence as life slowly begins getting back to normal for all of us.
The Amramp team recommends hiring a trusted professional accessibility expert, preferably a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS), who can evaluate your home to determine what changes are needed to make the space as safely accessible as possible. This will help keep you safe as life returns to normal and the frequency of getting out and living your life increases in the weeks and months ahead.

People with mobility challenges who use a wheelchair, a walker, or other assistive devices often need one or more accessibility solution outside their home to be able to safely and independently enjoy being outdoors.
Some of our exterior residential solutions include:
Our ramps, stair lifts, safety rails, grab bars, and all other accessibility products are installed by local Amramp experts who can respond and install a solution in a matter of days.
Additionally, we recommend that outdoor pathways should be smooth and level without grass, pavers, sand, wood chips, pebbles, and any other debris. This will ensure that people who use a wheelchair, walker, or scooter can access all areas of the property outside of the home.
