November 4, 2015 in Senior Safety
We should all be concerned with home safety. But one of the most important and near to our heart safety concerns is senior safety. With the Senior population ever growing senior safety has become increasingly important.
Some of the more important safety features for Seniors are:
Motion Detector lighting
Wheel chair ramps
Motion detector lighting can be installed anywhere in the house and the advantage to this type of lighting is that is automatically comes on when you enter a room. Such as; bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, hallway and even front and back porches and decks.
Wheel chair ramps are important to make it easier for the Senior or Disabled to get into the house without much effort. These ramps need to be professionally installed and maintained for safety and proper installation, following all of the ADA guidelines.
Handrails installed in high use areas such as; bathroom showers, around the toilet area, front and back porches and decks, stair cases, and any area where the Senior or Disabled needs assistance in getting up or getting around.
All of these should be installed by a professional. And here at Robert Stice Construction/Consulting will be happy to assist you in any way in planning and installation to keep your house safe and accessible.
For the best results, call Robert Stice Construction/Consulting in Liberty Lake to thoroughly inspect your deck, deck stairs and deck railings and give recommendations on any deck repairs or maintenance.
