Wheelchair Ramps

Are you having trouble getting into your home? We specialize in accessibility and handicap ramps and they can be portable or temporary ramps. We also modify existing walkways and install new ones too.

Comfort Height Sinks & Commodes

In order to accommodate wheelchair and walker accessibility, modify the kitchen sink so there’s an open space beneath. The knee clearance should be at least 27 inches high and 8 inches deep for adults. You can install sliding drawers at either side of the sink in which to store cleaning products. The drain and piping should be placed at the rear of the sink so wheelchairs can easily roll underneath. Pipes should also be insulated or enclosed so users don’t burn themselves when hot water is running. For the faucet, consider a single-lever or touch control model to make it easy to use. 

Bathroom & Bedroom Rails

Having trouble getting in and out of your bed, bath or shower? We install rails that can help give you the support you need to stay mobile and indepenent.

Grab Bars & Shower Seating

Is it difficult to shower? We can help you get in and out of the shower safely by installing grab bars, along with specialty seating so you can shower just like royalty. We can turn a tub into a shower and give you a spa like experience. You can choose from custom porcelain, ceramic, acrylic to marble bath and shower enclosures.

Doorway Widening

Is it challenging to get from room-to-room with your walker or wheelchair? Let’s us help you move around with ease by widening your doorways, installing handrails, and removing old carpets. When you do these modifications and replace carpet with laminate or wood flooring you are eliminating hazards.

Countertops & Breakfast Islands

Most kitchen counters are about three feet high. To make them more accessible for differently abled people, they should be lowered to 28-34 inches above the floor, depending on the individual’s needs. You may also consider adjustable counters, which can raise and lower between 28-36 inches. These are particularly useful for households with multiple users, such as a senior and their in-home care person. Ensure there’s empty space below the countertop to allow walkers and wheelchairs to go underneath.

Appliances

Side-opening and drawer-style appliances are best. Appliances like microwaves should also be installed lower than usual, about 31 inches from the floor. For the stove, staggered burners and front-end controls ensure users don’t have to reach across hot burners. Light signals, as opposed to audible buzzers, are also helpful for those with hearing loss. Touch-pad controls are also best for people with limited strength or finger control. 

Cabinets

Many standard kitchen cabinets are too high or deep for people with a limited range of motion, and using a stepping stool may be unsafe. One option is to lower the cabinets. You can also install accessories such as adjustable and pull-down shelves, full-extension drawers, and lazy susans. Electric cabinets are also a possibility. These raise and lower and the touch of a button. For cabinet doors, consider using loop handles instead of knobs. Loops don’t require much hand movement, making them easier to use for people with arthritis. 

Painting

Want to freshen up your home with a new coat of paint? You don't have to worry about the hard to reach places. We provide professional painting services as well!
