Don’t Let Your Mobility Limitations Chase You Out of Your Home.
A survey by the American Association of Retired Persons found 90% of people aged 65 to 74 would like to live out their years in their current homes. Yet many homes are ill-suited for the physical limitations and challenges that arise with advancing age.
The primary issues seniors and people with mobility limitations come across in most homes are:
Space – Most homes don’t have enough open space in the appropriate areas to allow easy manoeuvring for people with mobility limitations, particularly those in wheelchairs or scooters.
Access – Counters, cabinets and storage areas are designed for easy access for people who have no limitations on their reaching, bending or standing.
Safety – Storing heavy or large items, reaching across hot elements on the stove, retrieving linens from a high shelf, taking a shower and other seemingly routine tasks can be very dangerous for people with mobility limitations.
Some home renovation contractors are beginning to realize the value in providing renovation services specifically to those with mobility limitations. Unfortunately most of these jack-of-all-trades types have little experience with mobility aiding products or in understanding the medical conditions of their clients.
The lure of low prices highlights the risk in hiring them…trusting someone with your health should never be based on price.RenosGroup.ca is currently one of Ottawa’s only specialist in providing mobility limitation renovations…we don’t cut corners with your well-being.
“The More Your Renovator Knows About You, the Safer You’ll be in Your Home.”
If your potential renovator can’t observe the nature and severity of your mobility limitations within the confines of your home, they can’t possibly make your home safer or more accessible.
