Getting Ready to be Wheelchair Accessible at Home

We become comfortable in our homes, everything is set in its spot, then something changes and we have to quickly plan for the future, such as wheelchair accessibility needs. Accommodating wheelchair accessibility can have many obstacles, some of which are easier to handle than others. But the good news is that there are ways to plan for this life changing event by going through a household blueprint checklist to make sure that nothing is overlooked.

The General Home Accessibility Guidelines Checklist that Kristen Geil put together will very helpful to you and your family.  The checklist is simple and straight forward. It begins with making sure pathways are clear in the exterior and interior while keeping in mind standard size widths to accommodate depending on the type mobility equipment you are preparing for.  The other areas to look at include lighting,  security, entry and exit points of the home, work space inside the rooms, etc. Best recommendation is taking the approach room-by-room to ensure you are adequately prepared.
