If you have a loved one who needs a wheelchair to get from place to place, adding ramps to your home is going to change their life. Without ramps, there may be large parts of the house that your loved one cannot access, limiting their experience in your home. Maintaining their sense of independence and agency is vital to promoting an overall enriching life, no matter who you are. So, here are 3 ways that ramps will improve your home.

Keep Your Loved One Safe

If you live with someone who struggles with their mobility, stairs are going to pose a problem whether they’re in a wheelchair or not. Even one step that leads from your kitchen into the backyard can be quite dangerous. Poor balance, coordination, and vision can all lead to falling and getting hurt no matter your age, but with ramps placed strategically throughout your home, you can circumvent this potential hazard.

Create Value for the Future

When you install permanent ramps in your home, you can actually improve the value of your home. There are a lot of people who use wheelchairs, walkers, and other mobility devices and they need places to live that accommodate their needs. When you install ramps in your home, you are creating a home for them too, one day, if you ever decide to sell.

Give Your Loved One What They Need to Succeed

Privacy and independence are some of the most important parts of our lives, and those of us that do not have a disability probably take them for granted. However, when you struggle with mobility problems, even getting to the bathroom on your own can seem impossible. There are times where we all need help, and if you can help your loved one retain their independence and privacy, you should. Being able to behave independently and being able to maintain their privacy will help them stay positive and keep their chin up. That alone is worth it.
