Making Your Home Safer & More Accessible!
People change and so does the way they live in their homes. Adapting the home so that you or your loved ones remain safe and can access the things you need is an important part of the work we do.
There are many ways to make a home safer and more accessible from the simple such as tacking down carpets, to the more complex such as installing a chair lift or elevator. In between there are hundreds of useful changes that can be made that cost very little but make a big difference. These include but are certainly not limited to:
Renovations to allow a first floor occupancy and avoid stairs.
Installing bars throughout the bathroom to avoid slips and falls.
Installing double banisters on stairways and handrails in corridors.
Lowering shelves and countertops to provide easier access.
Step in tubs and a hand-held shower on an adjustable rod or high-low mounting brackets.
Pull-out shelves under counter to enable work from a seated position.
