Home Adaptations for Improved Access for the Disabled

If you, or any member of your family have mobility issues, you’ll be pleased to learn that special adaptations can be carried out to make the home more accessible for those with mobility issues. These alterations are not as costly as you might think, and by sourcing a builder with house design plans in Sidwell, you can take the first steps to making your living space more accessible.

  1. Designed By Mobility Experts – Dealing with a company that specialises in mobility adaptations means you don’t have to worry about planning permission, and should you qualify for any local government grants, the builder will be able to help you with the application process.
  2. Stair Lift – If you are unable to use the upstairs of your home, why not install a state of the art stair lift? Whether new or used, you can have a system installed that fits perfectly, and this allows the disabled person independent access to the upper floor.
  3. Bathroom Adaptations – This is the one room in the house that disabled people have issues with, and due to the hard surfaces found in the bathroom, it can be very dangerous for those with mobility issues, especially with wet floors. Non-slip mats in all the right places and handrails for essential support will allow an elderly person the independence that every person needs when using the bathroom.

The above are just a few examples of what can be done to make a home more accessible, and by asking a local expert to visit you at home, they can make a few suggestions on cost-effective adaptations that will make life easier and safer for a disabled person.
