A Guide to Making your Home More Accessible

  If you, or a member of your family suffer with mobility issues, there are quite a few things you can do to make your home more accessible. Technology has given us some innovative solution to help those who have trouble moving around, and with that in mind, here are some additional features that are designed to make life more comfortable and moving around the home more convenient.

  • Stairlifts – These innovative devices enable people to make full use of their home, and whether you have a straight or curved staircase, there are units designed for both. If you would like to explore the potential of stairlifts, an online search will put you in touch with a local company who would be happy to send an expert to your home.
  • Bathroom Features– The bathroom presents a problem for many people who have mobility issues, and there are special handrail supports that can be fitted to help with the toilet and shower. Non-slip mats make the bathroom a much safer place for the elderly and people with mobility problems, and a special non-slip floor can also be installed for a more permanent solution.

There are mobility scooters that can be used inside the home and also for trips to the local shops. The supplier would have a range of new and used units, which means you will find one that best suits your needs.
