Making Stairs Safer and Easier for Seniors

Making Stairs Safer and Easier for Seniors

Our bodies undergo many changes as we age. Some examples are the weakening of our bones, joints, and muscles. Before we know it, even a short flight of stairs has become a huge challenge.

For many seniors, using the stairs can be difficult, painful, and even dangerous. This is why a Ramp in New Jersey is often required by the local government in stores, schools, and other establishments.

But how can you help your wheelchair-bound loved one get by at home? Mobility Construction is here to offer up a few popular requests from our General Construction services. Take a look:

  • Stair lifts
  • Stair risers
  • Anti-slip strip on the steps
  • Anti-slip stair nosing on stair cases
  • Grab bars beside beds, foot of the stairs, and bathrooms

A few more useful tips are to install better lighting in your loved one’s bedroom, and across the hallways, plus, using contrasting colors in furniture, and other indoor structures to increase visibility.

Home modifications such as Wheelchair Ramp Installation in Freehold, New Jersey also help seniors in preserving their independence, minimizing hospital costs, minimizing the damages to the house, and improving mental health.

By the way, these home modifications aren’t only for your seniors. They are for you, the family caregiver, as well. An easier life for your aging beloved also means lesser stress and burdens on their caretakers.
