When someone undergoes an unexpected hospital stay, their first thought is usually “When can I go home?” Peerless Improvements can make getting home easier with an occupational therapy evaluation to determine exactly what your new needs are in the home. One family recently utilized this service to ensure a safe transition from hospital to home. Among some smaller modifications and recommendations inside the house, a ramp in the garage was installed to allow for easy ingress/egress.
Since this individual was going to use a walker for ambulation, the slope of the ramp could be slightly higher than is usually required for someone who would be using a wheelchair. The railings are designed for easy grasp-ability for a person dealing with arthritis and the non-skid surface decreases the risk for falls. Now this family can rest easy knowing that they have easy access in and out of the house while maintaining the use of their garage for storage and parking.
