The feeling of being restricted in your own home isn’t a very good one. When you’re young, healthy and capable, this feeling may prompt you to want to find a new home to live in. However, if you’ve been in your home for a long time or love everything about your home with a few exceptions, then making modifications may be the ideal option. For multi-level homes with limited landing space, the right accessibility products can make the area seem larger and more accessible for seniors living at home.
A Stair Lift Is Compact And Installs On Any Staircase
The first thought some people have when they think of a stair lift is it’s going to take up too much space on the staircase. The reality is stair lifts today are made as compact as possible, while still offering optimal sturdiness and comfortability. The rail system is installed on the existing staircase and takes up a very small amount of space. Whether your home has a straight or a curved staircase, there is a stair lift available to suit your needs. There are indoor and outdoor options available to give you more access to every area of your home.
A Vertical Platform Lift Solves Many Accessibility Problems
If you want to keep your staircases completely clear, then a vertical platform lift may be the right solution to give you the accessibility you desire. They don’t take up a significant amount of floor space and many models are large enough to allow you to wheel a wheelchair or scooter on it with ease. Vertical platform lifts can be installed indoors or outdoors and can be open or enclosed. It’s a very popular solution for people who don’t want to take up space on their stairs, but still need access to different levels without using the stairs.
Modify Your Home To Fulfill Your Needs
Everyone has different accessibility needs and every home is designed differently. When you think about what would make your day-to-day life easier, having a professional evaluate your home is the next step in making it more accessible. With the wide range of accessibility tools and products available today, seniors living at home can stay in the home they love and still feel like they aren’t restricted. Comfort and peace of mind are two factors that shouldn’t be compromised, and simple home modifications may be the solution to ensure those attributes remain.
