Choosing In-Home Accessibility Modification
Your home is the most important place. Making sure that your home is accessible to you is our specialty. For those with unique needs, in-home accessibility modifications can make a home much safer and more navigable. Each person, however, will need a different solution based on a variety of competing factors. This need is why Accessibility 101 remodeling works with you to increase in-home accessibility with multiple ADA-approved solutions.
Your solutions might include things like, accessible bathrooms, hard surface flooring, walk-in tubs, door widening, and kitchen remodels. Each of these have a variety of benefits, but none more important than the effect it has on your safety and independence. Whether you are a person who is fully disabled, or simply an aging adult with mobility issues, all in-home access modifications make it easier to live without making sacrifices.
How We Do Accessible Remodeling
There are many reasons you may require accessible remodeling, like accidents or illness. Accessibility 101 provides in-home access modification that caters to your needs. We first meet with you to discuss your needs and provide the best-fitting solutions for your home. By meeting with you, we can be sure that the solutions we provide are all-encompassing and provide you with a non-restrictive environment.
We will meet your needs and offer the ideal package for you and your home. With help from Accessibility 101, your home can be fully usable without forfeiting your independence. Here are just a few reasons you may choose to remodel for accessibility:
- Uneven Floors: Uneven floors present a challenge for wheelchair users and for people with limited mobility. These floors are often dangerous to navigate, especially when the transitions between rooms are uneven. Accessibility 101 offers walker friendly non-slip flooring, non-slip 2x2 ceramic tile, non-slip luxury vinyl, non-slip LVP, and walker slides across floors.
- Narrow Doorways: Accessibility 101 uses door widening to make your home more maneuverable. You would be mistaken to think that door widening only applies to wheelchair users. While wheelchair users do often require door widening to accommodate their chairs, people with limited mobility may also need this service. Eliminating narrow doorways in your home is also necessary for people with walkers or anyone who may need a wider opening.
- Inaccessible Rooms: There are two rooms which commonly need adjusting for disabled people. These two rooms are the bathroom and the kitchen. Accessibility remodeling can make bathrooms much safer to use for people with limited mobility. In the kitchen, inaccessible counters and cabinets often hinder disabled people and need to be altered.
- Difficult Transfers: Transferring presents a unique problem, and an error during a transfer can be extremely dangerous. Whether you need to transfer yourself or a loved one up the stairs or out of bed, there are solutions like stair lifts and ceiling lifts. These lifts can help people with limited mobility who are at risk of falling along with wheelchair users.
Independence with Accessibility 101
Everyone values their independence. Even if you have a temporary illness or injury, your ability to maneuver within your home may suffer. In many circumstances this can require long stays at a rehabilitation facility or movement into a more accessible environment permanently. No one wants to leave their home, and in-home accessibility modification can help preserve your freedom.
For many of those affected, in-home accessible remodeling can help you retain your independence by enhancing common problem-areas within your home. After the remodeling process is complete, you’ll be able to use each area of your home again. With full use of your home, you won’t require a move to a different facility or permanent assistance. Remodeling with Accessibility 101 will ensure that you can remain in your home for as long as you like, without fear or safety concerns.
