Adapting Your Home For Mobility

Monday, September 7th, 2015 by morethan

Adapting your home can positively impact on someone’s quality of life. It can also provide a measure of assurance for safety if you or a family member is disabled or have issues with mobility.

As many of our More Than Mobility customers suffer from mobility issues we have highlighted some of the key alterations to make a home suitable for someone with a disability or limited mobility:

  • Doorways – Make doorways and passageways wider if you need to use a wheelchair or powerchair
  • Grab Rails – Install grab bars and rails to assist with balance when moving around the house
  • Household Mechanisms – Move household mechanisms such as electrical outlets, light switches and door knobs to more accessible heights
  • Bathroom – Adapt a bathroom, by raising the toilet, adding a toilet back-rest, or putting a bath lift or hoist in for the bath
  • Ground Floor Rooms – Create easy access to bathroom or bedroom facilities at ground-floor level
  • Ramps – Install ramps to avoid the need to use steps
  • Paths – Ensure that external paths to the your home – such as paths or drives – have a firm, level surface
  • Stair lifts – Install stair lifts or elevators to aid travel from one floor to another
  • Chair & Bed Raisers – Invest in specialist furniture such as a rise and recline chair or electric adjustable bed
  • Alert Devices – Install alert devices, designed for someone who is deaf or hard of hearing

Some adaptations are quick and relatively cheap to do while others may take a bit more time, saving and planning. We therefore recommend to plan ahead so that when the time comes you are not having to make a decision in a rush.

These mobility products cater for all kinds of mobility related issues. By understanding the disability and the particular physical challenges associated, you can identify and prioritise what products you will need.

Arthritis – arthritis causes joint inflammation that induces painful movement for the sufferer. Ideal products to include in your home adaptation would be raised rise and recline chairs to limit strain on the joints from constantly standing and sitting. Another example would be replacing any fiddly knobs or switches with larger, more easily accessible buttons to minimise joint movement in the hands.

Osteoporosis – Osteoporosis weakens bones and increases the likelihood of bones breaking. It is vital that measures are taken to support mobility around the house with products such as stair lifts.

Loss of hearing and/or sight – Loss of hearing and sight can make a significant impact on your loved one’s independence — both mentally and physically. Adding hand rails to your home will assist those suffering from loss of sight, as they will act as guides around the home and assist in building familiarity with their environment. For those with loss of hearing, there are special alert devices that use vibrations to notify the user when there are visitors at the door etc.

Parkinson’s – Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological disease that causes loss of dopamine-generating cells in the brain. The brains inability to properly function without these vital cells produces symptoms such as tremors, rigidity and slow movement. Slow and limited mobility is frustrating to the patient, so by investing in products such as shower chairs, grab bars and non-skid mats they will feel more in control in their day-to-day tasks.
