With Valentine’s Day coming up soon, it’s a perfect time to check in with a loved one to make sure the spaces inside their home are as safe and accessible as possible. If you’re planning a virtual visit via video conferencing or an in-person get together with a loved one who has mobility challenges, take the time to do a wellness check to evaluate their safety at home.
The cold winter months combined with the ongoing pandemic can make life at home right now a difficult time for people who struggle with stairs or have difficulty doing everyday things in their home. That’s why it’s so important – now more than ever – to lift your loved one’s spirits by helping them live more comfortably in their day-to-day lives.
For people with mobility challenges, daily activities in the home can often present challenges. Stairs and narrow doorways and hallways make it difficult to maneuver inside the home, especially for those using a cane, walker, wheelchair or scooter. Amramp offers a wide range of solutions to overcome these barriers to make a home safer and more accessible.
A Stair Lift installed by a highly trained Amramp certified accessibility professional is a surprisingly affordable option that will make a big difference in the life of a person with mobility challenges.
Also, a Lift Chair that rises and lowers ensures that the person using it can stand up with ease as well as being safely and comfortably seated for TV viewing, reading, and other activities. Also, a Smart Rail can be installed in the bedroom to help you get in and out of bed with safety and ease.
Grab bars or a SuperPole in the bathroom and toilet area makes bathrooms safer and increases maneuverability. Also, a ShowerBuddy can help transfer those who use it to the toilet or to a shower seat. Or, when placed in the middle of the kitchen, a SuperPole provides an excellent solution to help your loved one maintain their balance.
Whether a home needs a Stair Lift that connects to upper floors, a SuperPole or ShowerBuddy in the bathroom, or a Lift Chair to make sitting down and standing up safer – let an Amramp expert show you all the ways you can make your loved one’s home more accessible this winter.
