Are the stairs or walkways collecting snow and ice, which is difficult to remove and navigate? Is the entrance not accessible for someone who utilizes a wheelchair?
Solution: Amramp allows snow and ice to fall through, providing a stable platform for home access, and the safety railings further guard against slips and falls. Modular wheelchair ramps may be installed at the front, side, and back entrances or even in the garage. Stair lifts and platform lifts are other solutions that may suit the individual’s needs.
Do you notice they may be out of breath going up or down stairs, or do they avoid them due to the stress on their legs and feet?
Solution: A stair lift is a surprisingly affordable option, and it makes everyday life easier. Platform lifts can also be used both inside and outside.
Is the bathroom properly equipped with safety measures for someone with mobility concerns?
Solution: We have multiple home modifications to ensure bathrooms can be utilized safely, such as grab bars and safety rails, zero entry showers and walk-in tubs, transfer seats and devices, ADA-approved toilets and accessible sinks, plus other solutions.
