Home Renovations for Independent Living

How to Make a Bathroom Handicap Accessible

Everybody is good at something, as long as we are given the appropriate environment to develop our potential. The ‘disability’ does not come from the impairment (be it physical, sensory, intellectual, or psychological).

The disability is created by an inaccessible home environment. 

Inaccessible environments are everywhere. The design of our society is built for those who do not have impairments. If everyday errands require navigating challenges, it’s even more critical for the home to be a space to relax and unwind. Home updates and renovations are key to improving independence in life.

The need for a home that is functional is necessary for a quality life. Simple modifications like moving light switches and removing entry barriers significantly impact daily activity. For some, only specific rooms need changes, like installing grab bars in your shower or bathroom to ensure safety. Custom, minor changes throughout the house enhance independence. These home changes also provide peace of mind for family members who are outside of the home.

Independent living encompasses the ability to make choices for yourself about how you live, where you live, and who you live with. For people living with a disability, it also includes who helps them and how they help. Everyone deserves the opportunity to live alone if that’s what they want. Home renovations for accessibility prioritize independence.
