Improving Access At Home with Ramps
Often, seniors return home from hospitals or skilled nursing centers in a wheelchair. Naturally, those that were hospitalized as a result of a fall are often sent home in wheelchairs or using walkers, but other sicknesses can make walking too strenuous causing people to be temporarily or permanently wheel chair bound. People who were used to being able to come and go as they please can suddenly feel trapped at home with no easy way to enter and exit because of entry way stairs. The once-familiar home can become unapproachable to a senior in a wheelchair if stairs are present – and most homes seem to have at least a few stairs into the home even if there are no stairs in the home. We can help solve the problem by bringing in experts to custom build an access ramp to ADA specifications.
Properly built ramps make it possible for wheelchair-bound seniors to move in and out of the home without the risk of falling by trying to go up and down stairs in a wheelchair or walker.
Our experts understand proper ramp construction techniques, ADA specifications, and our clients need for affordable and timely ramp solutions.
