Wheelchair Accessible Entrance Modifications in Northern Virginia / D.C. / Maryland metro area
Before modifying your home, there are critical considerations – not widely understood – prior to any purchase of equipment.
The trained professionals at Live In Place are the proven entrance modification experts in the Northern Virginia / D.C. / Maryland metro area. We make changes that will enable your loved one to enter and exit the family home – retaining a real degree of independence and security. There’s a lot more that goes into the proper choice, installation, and successful use of an entrance enhancement than what you see at first glance!
What design meets the specific abilities and body mechanics of your loved one? How do these factors vary according to their own unique medical condition, disease progression, and even the caregiver’s own abilities? Live In Place has professional answers to serve you better.
Prior to purchase and installation, “Best in Class” evaluations are conducted by certified occupational and physical therapists who are trained in aging-in-place mobility options, including expertise in entrance and exit modifications. This ensures your peace of mind that the improvements are right for your loved one – increasing safety while retaining their independence.
When walking is an option, step height may be challenging, and safety is a concern.
Options may include:
- Modifying step heights
- Grips to allow safe passage across thresholds
- Enhancements that consider progressive changes
- A combination of these to meet the specific abilities and body mechanics of your loved one
Again, these changes can dramatically improve safety while allowing continued walking or mobile independence.
