The best way to make life easier and more manageable for a disabled family member is by making your entire home accessible.
Handicap and accessible remodeling is not an easy undertaking; you may need to readjust most parts of your home. It’s a big task, but it is worth it to make life more comfortable for your loved one.
Here’s a list of various modifications you can make for a more accessible home:
- The bathroom remodeling
For the bathroom, you can make changes such as:
- Adding a walk-in tub
- Upgrading to curbless showers
- Spa commode seats will also do
- A sit-down vanity
- adding supportive accessories such as grab bars
- Increasing the bathroom size for a 360 degrees wheelchair turn
- Including an ADA-height toilet
- Maximizing natural lighting as much as possible
- Kitchen remodeling
If your loved one wants to live independently, you can consider upgrading various aspects of the kitchen, such as:
- Switching the kitchen sinks to sit-down level sinks
- Lowering the appliances to wheelchair height
- Designing drawers and cabinets to lower levels
- Common spaces remodeling
The common spaces, such as the entryway and other open spaces, need remodeling. You can make your doors automatic, widen hallways and doorways, add stairlifts, keep the open spaces well lit, and switch up your flooring to safer options such as hardwood and vinyl.
- The exterior
The exteriors are not an exception; you can make modifications for accessibility by:
- Upgrading to barrier-free patios and gardens
- Widening walkways
- Building wheelchair ramps
