Disability Plans for Rehabilitate at Home
We facilitate your living with the remodeling of your home to better your daily routines and quality of life.
A remodeling towards disability requirements is a minimum necessity to conserve your independence and way of living.
As a result of a traumatic event or sudden illness, a disability may be difficult in means of home navigation; more difficult it would be to not have the set conditions for such.
As a starting point, the best plans are generally commenced through the kitchen, bathrooms, or exterior of the property. This list will help you identify the areas where your home needs the remodeling.
Disability requirements in kitchen
By re-designing your kitchen, you should be sure that the hallways are sufficiently large to maneuver a wheel chair.
The depth of the sink must also be considered from a person sitting on a wheel chair.
Also, the door handles must be handicap approved and easily maneuvered with one hand. For those individuals that have limited or no use of their hands, door handles are available in electronic formats.
Stoves may also be installed at desired heights. If a person is partially blind, the choice would be a colorful stove to contrast the given colors in order to distinguish the hot from cold temperatures.
Pocket doors on cabinets work best when maneuvered from a wheel chair.
Assigned working areas must have a maximum height from 30 to 36 inches in height. These measurements are designed to maximize utility functions. This is also useful if you have back problems or a limited reach.
Kitchens with round borders help to ease a fall or lesion.
Covers assist by differentiating and separating spaces. Bright colors are more adequate for persons with poor vision. Depth perception helps distinguish between walls, doors, armoires, etc.
REMODELING FOR BATHROOM DISABILITY REQUIREMENTS
Make sure that the interrupters are at a height that can be accessed by the person from a sitting position.
Small children may also benefit from this consideration to the design.
Bath tubs and showers must be equipped with railing bars for support, non-slippery floors, available seating, and manual shower heads. When installing rail bars at a private residence and if possible, confirm location with property owner. Thermostat temperature may also be changed according to needs; this also benefits small children in the property.
