Maryland Custom Home Modifications
Most homes are filled with obstacles not easily overcome by those with mobility problems. Here at Freedom Mobility, our primary goal is to solve these problems for you and help you to become mobile in your own home again! As part of our efforts, we offer an extensive custom home modification consultation for anyone in need and will use our years of experience to identify areas where mobility could be an issue.
Custom Home Modifications for Seniors with Disabilities
The older we get, the harder some tasks become. Don’t let yourself or your loved one become afraid to move about your home due to the risk of falling. Our Certified Aging-in-Place Specialists (CAPS) can conduct a mobility consultation in your home to identify areas where improvements can and should be made.
Aging in Your Own Home
Our goal is to make you feel comfortable in your own home again. What this means is different for every person and every house, so a personalized home modification consultation is required to satisfy each individual’s needs. We look to find a plan that fits both your budget and your needs. Some of the common mobility issues we see in client homes include, but are not limited to:
- Tall kitchen countertops
- Narrow hallways and doorways
- Limited wheelchair access to bathroom and kitchen sink
- Bathroom shower access limitations
- Inefficient transition strips between flooring
- Improper flooring for mobility equipment
- Steps in need of a ramp
- Two story homes in need of a stairlift
- Grab bars needed in the bathroom
- Handrails needed for inside/outside of your house
- Kitchen cabinet access
Ask your CAPS about what we can do to help alleviate some of these common problems. Other contractors may need to be involved for more extensive work prior to installations. In cases of leveling countertops, adjusting doorway width, flooring…these are more extensive services we do not provide, but can help you to find reputable companies who can help you with these services.
Our Home Modification Consultation Process
So once you’ve identified you’d like to obtain a consultation about the mobility issues in your home, give Freedom Mobility a call. We will walk through your home’s interior and exterior and go over the various potential trouble spots. As Certified Aging-In-Place Specialists we have the experience to envision how your home should be modified and can show you trouble areas. Then, once the consultation is complete, we will help you in determining the best course of action to improve your mobility within your home while adhering to your budget.
Home Modification Options
Here are a few of the available options we commonly use to help improve one’s home:
- Accessibility Ramps. We offer indoor threshold ramps allowing for ease of access between rooms, as well as modular and portable ramps that help for outdoor access. Our ramps are provided for rent, rent-to-own, or purchase depending on whether the need is temporary or long-term.
- Stairlifts. A set of stairs can become a daunting task when you’ve lost your ease of mobility. A stairlift can be one way to make your life just a bit easier. A stairlift gives you the convenience of an elevator without the cost or bulkiness. We offer a selection of stairlifts that are professionally installed with quality materials.
- Grab Bars and Handrails. Grab bars and handrails can be installed anywhere in your home, providing safety and ease of access throughout your home. We commonly see grab bars used in the bathroom, kitchen, and stairwells to improve safety and mobility.
