Let’s say your elderly relative is coming to live with you, as they require some care and support and you are wondering what you can do to make your home safer and more comfortable for your guest. Here are a few ways that you can prepare your home for a person with mobility issues.
- Stairlift – Whether looking for stairlift quotes in Dunstable or Maidstone, Google can help put you in touch with a supplier that offers new and used stairlifts that can be purchased or rented. The package comes with 24/7 support and the units are very easy to use and help is not required when the person wishes to use the stairlift and the provider would be happy to pay you a visit and survey the staircase.
- Bathrooms – Wet rooms with sharp corners and very hard surfaces are not ideal for people with mobility issues; a non-slip floor is a must, while you can install support rails for the shower and toilet. This will be a nice surprise for your guest and showing him or her how things work is a good idea.
- Walking frames – Your guest may have their own that they will bring, otherwise, search online for a local supplier of mobility aids and see what they have in stock. Your guest will certainly appreciate the effort you put in to make your home more accessible, plus you are creating a safe environment.
Whether for yourself or another, there are quite a few ways that you can make your home a safer place for those with mobility issues.
