Do you lose sleep at night knowing a disabled or elderly loved one is without the support they need to get in and out of their bedroom safely? Are you afraid you’ll wake up one morning only to find they fell in their bedroom? This is a normal feeling, unfortunately, but it is also completely preventable. With a wheelchair-accessible bedroom, you can have peace of mind knowing your loved one is safe and they will also feel more comfortable being in their own home!
Create Ample Space For Entryways
Just because a normal entryway is 36” wide doesn’t mean you have to stick with that standard. Besides, it’s your peace of mind and your loved one’s safety at stake, so you can do whatever you need to ensure both are taken care of! Widen doorways to 42” or larger to make them more wheelchair accessible without having to struggle to get through with a wheelchair or a walker. The door installation cost likely isn’t going to be as much as you expect, and once you take a look at the extra open space, you may not even want a door to the bedroom anymore.
Get a Lift While Getting In and Out of Bed
Getting out of bed in the morning is tough for anyone, much less for people with mobility issues. Adjusting the height of the bed to between 20”-23” is ideal if you don’t use a wheelchair to get around. Otherwise, a wheelchair-accessible bed will be roughly the same height as the seat of the wheelchair for easy in-and-out access. Need even more accessibility? Consider grab bars, ceiling lifts or investing in an adjustable bed to make getting in and out of bed the easiest thing you do all day!
