We just got this newsletter from our friends at Accessible Systems. If you are in need of home modifications, they are a fantastic resource for myositis patients in Colorado! We had the company speak at our April 2013 meeting and have several posts on this blog about services they provide, click here to search past posts.
We have been talking about getting a “field trip” together for our group to tour their modified show house – so we can all try out the equipment and get a real feel for these improvements! Are you up for a visit to their site? Let’s make it a date!
| 10 Ways To Make Your Home Safer
Are you living in a split level, tri-level, ranch, apartment, condo, patio, walk out basement or multi-level mountain home? Every home has an opportunity to create a safer and beautiful living space.
Check out 10 solutions to make your home safer today!
1. Are Your Grab Bars Groovy?
One in three adults 65 and older falls each year. Installing a $20 grab bar in your shower area can save thousands in medical cost. Protect those who come to visit you in your home!
2. No Step Entry Designs
People of all ages and mobility levels can benefit from a no step concrete entry. Friends with strollers, elderly family using walkers and friends in wheelchairs can easily visit you. Increase your resale with this look and style.
3. Do Your Stairs Need a Lift?
Indoor or outdoor stairs can be modified with a stair-lift for access to your front door, a second floor or a basement. Stair-lifts can have curves too.
4. Convert That Tub Into A Shower
Choose to remove an extra tub and create a safer showering place with a walk in shower. These transformations can happen in one day!
5. Safe Bathing Solutions Like Walk In Tubs
Safe bathing is critical as we age and choosing a walk-in tub is not only safe but offers hydrotherapy benefits.
6/7. Euro Style Bathrooms & Balance Aids
These open and spacious bathrooms will accommodate any user! See how much more room is created when a no step entry shower is designed. A simple floor to ceiling pole helps people make safe transfers in the bathroom.
8. Recliners That Look Good and Are Good To Your Hips
9. That’s a Ramp!
Your home should reflect your style and ramps can showcase your style.
10. Saving Space in Your Garage
