Home Modifications for Arthritis In VA
Arthritis brings with it significant mobility and safety issues in any environment.
Balance is affected by tight joints and arthritic limitations in the joints that may affect walking, transitioning from sitting to standing, and general movement.
Standing can be painful, and many individuals may need immediate aid with stability every time they stand up.
Live In Place will recommend home modifications that enhance the quality of life for those who suffer from various forms of arthritis or osteoporosis.
For instance, placement of items such as grab bars are dependent on strength limitations that have occurred as a result of these conditions.
Live In Place talks to the client and evaluates the person’s full situation. We assess all aspects of the home for joint protection and fall prevention, so we can thereby modify the surroundings to enable the client to stay in their home safely and protect their quality of life.
Live In Place educates the family on home modifications, joint protection, good body mechanics, and energy conservation.
You cannot afford a FALL! You may not recover from it. And falls are NOT less likely in assisted living or a nursing home. You can be safe within your own home.
Home modifications will be completed as needed to improve your safety and peace of mind.
