Do you have members in your place of worship that face a mobility obstacle when trying to enter your establishment? What about people with limited mobility looking to find a place of worship? We are sure that your congregation, church elders, pastors, or priests would never want anyone to feel unwelcome.

Unfortunately, when you cannot enter a building, people with limited mobility sometimes cannot help but feel unwelcome. Next Day Access can help! We have built several wheelchair ramps throughout the communities we serve and can build them for your place of worship without difficulty.  

Our professional wheelchair ramp installation team can provide ramps in even the most challenging spaces. We also offer various product options and will tailor our services to meet your needs. However, you also have options other than ramps that could be more convenient in specific locations.

These options include stairlifts, inclined platform lifts, or vertical platform lifts. We can assist in installing these products as well. The choice will likely depend on your budget. 

If you prefer to stick with wheelchair ramps, we can get creative with the ramps since there are many different styles. The following ramps are best suited for a place of worship; there are also several types of ramps perfect for traveling or for your home. 

Wheelchair Ramps at your Place of Worship

Threshold – These are smaller ramps designed to sit against the curb or the threshold of a door making it easier, once installed in the building, for people with wheelchairs to get around. 

Modular Ramps – A more significant and permanent ramp. These ramps do not require a building permit because they can be taken down and reassembled at another location. The material usually is made of aluminum. Aluminum is the best material for outdoor and commercial ramps because it does not warp or rust. 

Permanent Ramps – A building permit is required for these ramps because they are made of concrete or wood and cannot be moved once they are set in place. The construction time may take longer because the ramp is built on-site. Our Next Day Access team ensures that these ramps are aesthetically pleasing since they will be a permanent fixture. 

At Next Day Access, we are proud of our work. We ensure that our ramps are slip-resistant, easy to access, and durable. Whether you need a ramp replaced or notice you need a ramp added to your place of worship, we are happy to assist.

Please do not hesitate to contact your nearest Next Day Access to schedule a consultation. During your consultation, we will visit your place of worship and help you determine the best ramps to use and the best locations for the ramps. 

When choosing to rent or buy a ramp the decision can be confusing. An important thing to consider is how long will you need the ramp? If you think you will need it for longer than 6 months many people choose to buy the ramp. If you have a temporary injury and will need the ramp for less than 6 months, you might consider renting the ramp rather than buying it. 

However, different situations call for unique solutions. We compiled a checklist of common ramp uses to better explain why you should choose whether to rent or purchase a ramp.

Rent a Ramp

  • If you are injured and will only need short-term rehabilitation. If doctors believe you will make a full recovery, you will likely only need a ramp temporarily, therefore renting is a better choice in this scenario. 
  • If you are renting your property, it might be better to rent the wheelchair ramp. Most landlords will not pay to have a wheelchair ramp installed on their property. 
  • An end-of-life or hospice situation. If you know your loved one or yourself only have a few more years or months renting is preferable. 
  • You have guests with mobility challenges coming to visit and you would like to accommodate them during their stay. 
  • You are planning a special event. Perhaps you are having a wedding at your home or a family reunion. Whatever the case may be, it will be nice for anyone with difficulty in mobility to enter the house safely.

Buy a Ramp

  • You might consider purchasing the ramp if it will be used for longer than 6 months. 
  • You or the one needing the ramp owns the property and would like to install a wheelchair ramp to make the home permanently accessible for years to come.

At Next Day Access, we offer a variety of wheelchair ramp styles for you to rent or buy, such as foldable ramps, aluminum ramps, weatherproof ramps, and more. We will deliver and install wheelchair ramps for both residential and commercial customers. You can contact us for a quick quote. You will also receive a free estimate and financing is available if you choose to buy. 

At Next Day Access, we are proud to offer a vast assortment of products that help people with disabilities and seniors aging in place live comfortably, safely, and independently. Here are a few products we urge you to consider to help prevent you from falling in your home. 

Grab Bars

At Next Day Access, we have an assortment of grab bars and handles. Grab bars do not strictly need to be installed in the bathroom. They can be installed throughout the house. Many are choosing to install them down hallways and at a front door enclave. In fact, one of our curved security bars can be placed anywhere in the house. It stands from ceiling to floor and has a curved bar attached that enables users to pull on it when getting into a standing position. You also can lean on it when sitting back down.  

Wheelchairs and Scooters

Getting around the house once you feel you have difficulty with mobility is no trouble with a scooter or wheelchair. At Next Day Access, you will find the perfect scooter or wheelchair for you. During our free at-home consultation, we can help you decide which would work best based on your daily activities and your home configuration.

Bathroom Products

In addition to grab bars, we also offer several solutions to keep you safe in the bathroom. We have portable showers, walk-in bathtubs, and an array of shower chairs and benches. We understand most falls occur in the bathroom, so we want to ensure your bathroom is safe with our product selections.

If you are concerned that your home is not fall-proof and you want to see what products are available to keep you safe. We urge you to visit us at Next Day Access today or contact us to schedule a free in-home consultation. We will do all we can to ensure your home is safe and secure. 

If you own a commercial property, you should make it accessible for everyone to enter. When creating your storefront entrance, make it accessible for individuals of different mobility levels. Creating an accessible entrance to your storefront might seem daunting. To ease those concerns, let us help you easily get an accessible entrance.

Next Day Access specializes in wheelchair ramps of all sizes. Since they are cost-effective and relatively affordable, your business would benefit from one. Here are a few wheelchair ramp designs you could choose from: 

Big Lug Threshold Ramp 

This ramp provides 42 inches of width in front of the doorway. When installing the ramp, you may choose to also install handrails for added stability. This ramp has a small footprint and works best for those using walkers or wheelchairs trying to get over the threshold.

Open Weave Ramp 

This longer ramp features an open-weave surface which makes it ideal for storefronts in areas where snowy and icy conditions pose a threat. It is made entirely out of aluminum and boasts two-way traction with an astonishing 1,000-pound weight capacity.

Solid Surface Wheelchair Ramp 

This signature ramp is one of our most popular ramps. This aluminum ramp offers an easily configured fit, has a 1,000-pound weight capacity, and installs in a matter of hours. Its surface is solid which provides a smooth ride.

At Next Day Access, we can have your storefront accessible ready in no time. We proudly sell, deliver, and install a wide range of commercial wheelchair ramps, among other home accessibility products. When you are ready to prepare your storefront for the public, contact us!

A fall for an aging loved one can be detrimental because their bones are more brittle causing a hospital visit. We at Next Day Access want to help prevent falls for you or your aging loved one.

We understand sometimes older adults could be on medication that could cause dizziness which makes them more likely to fall. To ensure safety this winter season, here is a list of tips to help you stay safe.

Fall Prevention Tips

  1. When getting out of a car, be sure to use a car handle that slides into your car door or a handle that attaches to the handle near the top of the door. Both help you lean down on them as you exit the vehicle. Once you have your footing, grab arms with your companion and slowly make your way indoors. 
  1. Use handrails when provided. Move slowly, taking your time to use the railing as far as it will get you.
  1. Wearing gloves keep your hands warm and can be helpful when gripping walls or rails. Keeping your hands free can improve your ability to maintain balance. Consider wearing a cross shoulder bag, backpack, or fanny pack.
  1. Concentrate on the path ahead without distractions, and walk slowly. Make sure to firmly plant each foot on the ground as you walk. 
  1. If you have your cell phone on you, call the family member or friend you are meeting. If you are by yourself, ask a store employee or manager to assist you.
  1. Plan ahead for your outing. If you notice treacherous, snowy, icy, rainy, or slippery weather, do your best to rearrange your plans. 
  1. Wear proper footwear. You get a pass on fashion during winter weather! Wear boots or shoes with textured soles with a grip on the bottom that adheres to messy weather. 
  1. If you need a mobility device to help, ensure you have one with a good grip.
  1.  Do not rush. If that means you must leave home sooner, so be it. Rushing can cause a slip. 
  1. Lastly, always ask for help! People are often willing to assist you.

Inevitably there will come a time when you need a home health aide to take care of your aging loved one or even share the responsibility. Do not look at it like you are giving up, but instead, you are doing them a favor.  

For some parents approaching the subject of a caregiver, other than yourself, may cause them to be upset. However difficult the conversation can be, it could be the only way to ensure your aging loved one is receiving top notch care every day. To help you decide if your loved one needs a home health aide, here’s a list of warning signs.

A Lack in Personal Hygiene  

A change in personal appearance and behavior are common indicators that your loved one needs some help at home. You may not notice changes in personal hygiene, such as wearing dirty clothes. Notice your family member’s appearance and pay attention to their body odor. These are some signs your aging loved one could be letting their hygiene go. It can become too troublesome for them, or it could be memory loss.

Often, as adults age, their skin becomes thinner and thus more brittle, and a shower could physically hurt them. It could be time for sponge baths.

Weight Loss 

This could sneak up on you if you are used to seeing your parent/grandparent often. But if you find that your loved one appears thinner than what you consider their “normal” weight, it may be a sign of trouble for the future. Possible causes could be trouble with meal preparation, depression, memory loss or cognitive decline. 

It is common for people suffering from a memory impairment, such as Alzheimer’s to forget how to cook their food or even eat.

Housekeeping is No Longer a Priority 

If you notice your parent’s home is full of clutter and messy when it is typically in tip-top shape, this could be a sign that something is wrong. They could be too tired or even depressed to perform daily chores. Depression can cause them to neglect to keep the house clean. The bottom line, a messy home can cause a healthy person to become sick. Their mood will lift in a clean home, and they will relax and breathe easier.

If you notice items appearing in unusual places, for example, the container of coffee creamer tucked into the dishwasher rather than the refrigerator, or shoes placed on the table rather than beneath it, this could also be a sign of early-onset dementia, stroke, or even Alzheimer’s.

When to look for help?

If you find you are exhausted and overwhelmed trying to take care of your relative, it may be time to consider a home health care aide. The change could upset your loved one at first, but it is likely they will grow to appreciate the companionship and help around the house. Encourage and support them as you transition to finding a home health aide.

Next Day Access is in the business of improving the quality of life for seniors. We have a large variety of home modifications, accessibility devices, and mobility equipment to help older loved ones get around easier in their homes and while they are out in town. Contact us today for a free in-home consultation.  

Schools, hospitals and medical clinics are accustomed to heavy wheelchair traffic. How can they best create a safe and easy path in and out for wheelchair users? They can call Next Day Access.

Next Day Access provides commercial customers with the most complete line of commercial wheelchair ramps on the market.

With the same custom-order ability and variety of surface options available on our residential wheelchair ramp systems, our commercial wheelchair ramps are also modular in design, which allows for greater value and versatility and prolongs the life of the ramp. In a commercial setting, this flexible design provides an even greater benefit, as new construction or structural changes to the building may entail moving or adjusting the ramp.

The modular system design allows us to use the existing components and reconfigure the ramp or simply add components to meet any change of configuration or use. This is why Next Day Access is the preferred supplier for architects, engineers and contractors across the country.

Compliance with ADA rules is very important, for you and for the people accessing your facility. Always bear that in mind. Why risk exposure to a costly lawsuit when a Next Day Access commercial wheelchair ramp can help you maintain compliance?

Consider: For commercial use, with an individual seated in a wheelchair or on a scooter while it climbs the ramp, ADA recommends a 1:12 slope, which means that every 1″ of vertical rise requires at least 1’ (12″) of ramp length (5 degrees of incline). Example: A 24″ rise requires a minimum ramp length of 24’ (288″) (24 divided by 1).
