There are a lot of ways to make life easier around your Sacramento home. Combating mobility issues and disabilities to create or maintain an adequate living situation for those with challenges can give a great sense of independence - something to be valued physically and mentally. Home modifications can be made from the simple to the complex. With each area of the house that becomes accessible a new sense of well being can be felt.
Anthony Graves Construction helps Sacramento families ready their homes for returning parents or family members with limited mobility. One of the first places we look is the bathroom.
The bathroom is the place that people can really appreciate mobility and independence the most. Fixtures and additions to the bathroom that allow additional and easy mobility can have a strong positive effect. Simple things like handrails next to the toilet and in the shower are common accessories that allow easy access for anybody with mobility issue. With safety always a concern, slip resistant bathmats can help ease the fear of accidents for elderly relatives and shower chairs can take a lot of work out of a job that can be strenuous for some.
Creating mobility between rooms can be achieved with simple walking aids. Canes, crutches and frames are great to allow better and easier accessibility throughout the house. Even if they doesn't need to be used all the time, having the option available for after a surgery or particularly bad days of arthritis pain is a great extra support.
Stairs can begin to pose a problem for those who begin having trouble with mobility. Indoor lifts for stairs or platform lifts to allow easy accessibility for independent living wheelchair users can take the strain off and allow mobility throughout the whole house. Sometimes people don't look into stair lifts because they aren't sure their home is suitable. Stair lift tracks are able to curve around corners and bends, making them suitable for almost any set of stairs.
As well as maintaining access to the entire house, stair lifts are the best way to help prevent stair related incidents in the home from occurring. As well as working inside the home for access to other floors, stair lifts can be installed outside the home for entrance steps. There are plenty of programs that can provide funding assistance for such installations - try contacting the Ministry of Health to find out if you are eligible.
Products are available to help with the everyday obstacles we don't think about that crop up with age. Button hooks to help arthritis sufferers avoid unnecessary pain, ergonomic cutlery for easy gripping, rubber jar openers and shoe horns can take make the simple tasks simple again.
Don't let your loved ones suffer to get jobs around the house done; improve their quality of life with some of these accessible options and alternatives. Loss of independence is one of the worst things about suffering a disability or aging. With so many things available to maintain a high quality of life and overcome mobility issues. From bathroom hand railing to give easy shower access, to stair lifts that can keep all floors accessible and even prevent a loved one from having to move into a new home. It is easier now than ever before to retain that sense of independence which is so valuable.
