Entry Ways

The entry to your home is your connection to the rest of the world. It is important for receiving guests, for bringing in the groceries, for getting to appointments and for getting out to social events. It should be safe and convenient no matter what the weather, day or night, no matter what your condition.

Barrier-free entryways make it easier for a family member or friend with limited mobility to gain access to your home.

  • No-Step Entries – The walkway leading from the sidewalk or driveway to the front entrance has no steps and very little, if any slope, to accommodate someone who uses a wheelchair or has trouble climbing steps. A ramp is another type of no-step entry.
  • No-step Thresholds – Entryways leading into the home and into other rooms are not divided by a threshold, which eliminates a common tripping hazard.
  • Lift – Enables someone who uses a wheelchair, or has problems climbing steps, to gain access from the garage or exterior of the house.

Bathrooms

Space doesn’t get more personal than the bathroom. It should be comfortable, attractive and safe.

To increase safety and accessibility in your bathroom, you should consider making the following home modifications:

  • Installing a roll-in/low barrier shower with multiple, height adjustable showerheads (handheld and fixed)
  • Installing multiple grab bars
  • Lowering the bathroom sink and providing proper knee clearance
  • Installing an elevated toilet
