Guide to a Wheelchair-Friendly Homeby Andres Maldonado on 04/28/20
There comes a time in an elderly person’s life when they eventually lose mobility and they may require the assistance of a wheelchair.
As a provider of non emergency transportation in Brevard County, Florida, Comfort Ride LLC understand that transitioning to a wheelchair is not always easy, with most homes not being designed to cater to one. That is why we have come up with this guide to help you and your loved ones adjust better to the wheelchair life.
Build a ramp that leads into your home. This will make entering and exiting the house easier for your loved ones. You may also add ramps for your bathroom, kitchen, or other places where there are usually steps.
Know your loved one’s activities. Does he or she like to go around the house? If so, remove any clutter to make pathways accessible for a wheelchaired individual.
Install rails in bathrooms and in other parts of the house to increase your loved one’s safety and comfort.
Don’t make things hard to reach. Adjust most items in the house so that your loved one can reach them even in their wheelchair.
