a big difference
Equipment like ramps and grab bars are simple, quick modifications to your home that can make a big difference. These little changes make your home more accessible and safe for your whole family. Whether small children, seniors, wheelchair users, or others with disabilities, everyone can benefit from our team's focus on function as well as style.
Ramps keep your home accessible at all times for those needing to use walkers, scooters, or wheelchairs. A ramp also allows your at-home service providers such as nurses and physical therapists to bring their equipment in and out of your home safely and conveniently.
Ramps have many options when it comes to materials and installation. They can be built in a garage, hidden from view, or incorporated into porches or sides of homes. Heated ramps can ensure you never have to worry about snow or ice build-up. With wood, composite wood, metal, and cement options, Adaptable Home is committed to making your ramp look and feel like it was built with the home in mind. Ramps can also be added to the interior of homes with elevation changes and thresholds, even for just “one step down”.
Adaptable Home will first consult with you, the homeowners, and the caregivers, to see what the specific goals are that need to be obtained. At that point, we will submit ramp options that best fit the functionality of your home and are aesthetically appealing at the same time. Our expert team is aware of local building codes, so they will install the right size, slope, and length of the ramp.
Grab bars provide additional support for everyone, with extra confidence and balance for all. Grab bars are often coupled with other barrier-free home modifications that we might recommend, for instance, a grab bar added to a shower is frequently used with a shower chair and handheld shower head.
Adaptable Home can accommodate many styles, from the traditional steel grab bar to a more aesthetically designed bar that blends into any home decor. For example, Delta Faucet, a vendor of Adaptable Home, offers a line of hidden-in-plain-sight Decorative ADA Grab Bars and Décor Assist™ towel bars, corner shelves and tissue paper holders, all supporting up to 300 pounds of weight. They come in a variety of finishes to coordinate with contemporary, transitional, and traditional design and are easy to install and remove.
Adaptable Home understands that the need for a ramp or grab bar is sometimes unexpected and can come with a level of urgency and anxiety. Adaptable Home is prepared to come alongside your family and help adapt your home to fit your current emergency situation. We will work alongside your team of advocates and caregivers to incorporate the right barrier-free home modifications to accommodate your new world.
