Your home is a place you should enjoy.

It should not be a place that makes it difficult for you to live.

However, many people are faced with difficult living situations once they require the use of a wheelchair.

 

If you use a wheelchair, you need to make your home wheelchair accessible.

It will make it easier for you to go in and out, allow you to go about your day, and simplify your mobility limitations.

 

Here are 5 essential home modifications to make your home wheelchair accessible:

 

Entryway Modifications

Being able to get in and out of your home is essential to maintain a social and active lifestyle.

This can be challenging for an individual in a wheelchair.

Traditional home designs and stairs make it almost impossible for you to get into your home in a wheelchair without assistance.

You will need at least one entryway with no stairs. Installing a wheelchair ramp is often the first of many modifications to make to your home.

 

Doorway Modifications

Traditional doorways are often inside your home can be a significant barrier.

Many are not large enough for wheelchairs, limiting your ability to get into all rooms of your home.

There are many ways to modify doorways to make them more wheelchair-friendly.

You can expand the doorway, remove trim, and install pocket doors to create more space.

 

Bathroom Modifications

Having an accessible bathroom is a must for individuals in wheelchairs or mobility issues.

You will need enough space in the bathroom to turn your wheelchair without impairment.

Grab bars can be installed to assist with transitions from the wheelchair to the toilet, and bathtub and wheel-in showers can be installed to replace traditional bathtubs.

A non-slip floor or mat is essential to reduce the potential of a slip and fall.

 

Kitchen Modifications

Being able to access cupboards, countertops and utilities is a challenge for people in a wheelchair.

You can modify your kitchen to create enough space to turn around, access kitchen supplies, lower countertops, have appliances with more accessible designs.

You can also add kitchen hardware to make opening and closing drawers easier.

 

Stair Modifications

Those in wheelchairs are often limited to the main floor of their home.

But if you live in a multi-level home, you’ll want to access these areas.

Stair modifications such as lifts and even elevators can be installed in your home to help you access all areas of your home.
