When thinking of home modifications for a more accessible home in Harrisburg or the rest of PA, many people think of stairlifts or wheelchair ramps. While those are both great additions for accessibility, they just barely scratch the surface of the available modifications to make sure your home is accessible!
Here at Accessibility Solutions 360, we offer the following home modifications. Everyone deserves an accessible home, so give us a call today to get your free, no-obligation, in-home assessment scheduled!
One of the two more common home modifications that we work with, stairlifts give you or your loved one a safe way to ascend and descend stairs, all while minimizing fall risk. Specifically designed with those who can walk to or transfer themselves to the chair in mind, stairlifts are available in a variety of configurations to work with nearly any home.
Wheelchair ramps also provide an alternative to stairs. Most commonly used outside, wheelchair ramps can come in wood or aluminum, with heights and lengths customized to fit your needs. While we refer to them as wheelchair ramps, these ramps are helpful to those with canes, walkers, wheelchairs, powerchairs or mobility challenges.
One of a handful of different home modifications to provide you with an accessible bathroom, Altro wetrooms provide a full bathroom in less space than other bathroom modifications. These wetrooms remove the space requirement caused by tub or shower barriers, instead opting for a special flooring that has a water-tight seal and is slip resistant.
An alternative to stairlifts, the Telecab is an in-home elevator that provides access to multiple floors without having to transfer from a wheelchair! Plus, their unique design allows them to hide away in the basement or bottom floor while not in use to avoid taking up permanent space in the main living area in your home. The Telecab comes loaded with safety features as well, allowing you to rest easy knowing that furry friends and kids alike will be safe even while it’s in use.
Barrier Free Shower
If the Altro wetroom isn’t a good fit for your home, we can also install barrier free and low threshold showers. These options keep the water in the shower, while removing any major barrier that you must step over to access the shower. Barrier free showers specifically utilize a collapsible rubber threshold and heavy-duty weighted shower curtain to keep water where it belongs.
As an alternative to wheelchair ramps outside, platform lifts are often used to access one or more stops – specifically, they are often used to bypass stairs to get from the sidewalk to the front entrance of a home. With two types available, vertical and inclined, there are tons of possible applications for platform lifts!
