Here are some products and services that can help you stay in your home longer!
Roll under sinks
When confined to wheelchair, either partially or fully, it can be difficult to do normal, everyday tasks. A Roll under sink gives you back some of the flexibility to operate within your home; just as you always have.
Falling is the most dangerous thing that can happen to us after the age of 50. Sometimes, as we grow older, we lose a bit of our balance. This can be natural or caused by a drug we must take to control other conditions we might experience as we grow older. Grab bars are a way to reduce slips and falls in those areas of the home where they occur most often. Having that extra stability can make a huge difference in keeping you safe!
Zero threshold showers
These showers are great, whether you are in a wheelchair or just have trouble lifting your leg over the normal threshold without losing balance. They are design to simply walk in and enjoy a shower without the fear of slipping and falling.
As we get older, many are troubled by arthritis or other debilitating factors. A touch faucet allows you to safely turn water on and off and set the proper temperature without causing you pain or injury.
Ramps are obviously important for someone in a wheelchair, but can benefit any of us who get knee pain going up and down stairs. Even if there are only a few stairs, it can inflame a bad knee over time. A well designed ramp can solve the problem without drawing attention to itself.
As we grow older, our eyes require more light. You’ve probably noticed reading is harder in dim light than it used to be. Well, many tasks improve with more or better lighting, so much that it can affect safety. We endeavor to design a living space that gives you effective, safe lighting.
Too many steps in your house? If you don’t want to leave your home, but are tasked by the stairways consider a lift. It can safely transport you to all of the levels of your home with ease.
We also install lifts to bring wheelchairs up to the next house level. This gives a loved one the ability to use more of the house and to stay engaged with the family in normal daily tasks. It can make a huge difference in a life when the family can all participate in things together.
Home elevators are quickly becoming a great option for everyone who has trouble with stairs.
No step entries
Once again, the ability to remove a step for someone that has trouble traversing them is an important barrier removed!
Walk in bathtubs
This type of bathtub is great for those that prefer a bath to a shower, but have trouble stepping over the tub lip. The walk in tub is a safe and waterproof option to make you comfortable in your own home!
This is a simple, but important option for anyone in a wheelchair. It can save a crushed finger and makes moving around the home so much easier.
Hand held shower heads
If you have trouble manipulating yourself under the shower you can increase the risk of falling. A simple option for making your shower safer and more efficient is movable or hand held shower heads that allow you to direct the water flow exactly where it needs to go.
Handicap door thresholds
Just as in the bathroom, exterior entry into your home should not place a burden on someone in a wheelchair. We can build your threshold that keeps the weather out, but does not inconvenience or distract your loved ones.
Lever door knobs
Much in the same way faucets can be tricky as we get older, door knobs can be just as bad. Levers allow us to enter the room much simpler, keeping our hands safe.
Raised electrical outlets
As we get older, sometimes bending over can be difficult, so having your electrical outlets raised can make a big difference in your day to day life. It also is a great option for anyone in a wheelchair as they have direct access without having to lean over or out of the chair.
These seats can benefit in several ways. Not only does it make the toilet seat a bit higher, it also adds a great cleanliness option for those who have trouble. It is a very common option in Europe and we are happy to see it coming to the US for those that can benefit from it.
