According to a Center for Disease Control  article, around 61 million people in the country (26% of the population) had a disability as of 2010. And almost half of them are reported to have a severe disability.

The same report mentions that about 30 million of those people reported having trouble walking and needed walking aids such as a wheelchair, crutches, walker, and the like. And, almost 20 million people reported having trouble with lifting and grasping.

These figures clearly indicate the fact that more and more homes are necessarily in need of modifications to become more accessible to people with disabilities.

What Type Of Modifications Might Be Needed To Make Your Home Accessible

You might be wondering what types of modifications are needed around the house to make it more accessible for people with a disability. Here, we list some of the most common types of home modifications associated with making homes more accessible:

  • Outdoor Modifications: If the entrance to your property involves stairs at the front yard or at the house, you need to consider putting in a ramp to make it accessible for those in a wheelchair or walker. Additionally, if there is a path leading through your front yard, you need to make sure the surface is compatible with wheelchairs, while still retaining good traction, to make walking more easy for those with little balance easy. Finally, keep the way to the house well-lit to make navigation safe.
  • Front Door/Entrance Modification: Again, the front door or entrance might need to be widened so it can accommodate people with walking aids.
  • Bathroom Modifications: Consider replacing typical tubs and showers with walk-in showers, which make entry and exit more stable. Grab bars can be a particularly helpful addition in the shower and toilet area to help with balance and movement. Finally, make sure to use anti-slip tiles in the wet areas to prevent slipping accidents.
  • Kitchen Modifications: Those in wheelchairs might need the cabinetry height modified for easy access. Similarly, for those with limited mobility, it is important to arrange things in a manner that limits the amount of movement needed to get the job done.
  • Bedroom Modifications: Adjust the height of the bedroom furniture according to what is best for the person with the disability. Lower the closet rods if that is easier. Additionally, switching out the knobs that need turning with lever handles, as people with gripping and turning difficulties can struggle with round knobs.
  • Floor Modification: Carpets and rugs can be difficult to deal with on a wheelchair or walker. It is better to choose laminate, vinyl, or other smooth flooring, but make sure that it is not slippery.
