Elevators installed with more than 4 inches of “gap space” between the hoistway doors and the elevator car doors can pose a serious safety risk. Children may become entrapped in the space and could be seriously injured or killed. This risk can be reduced with the proper installation of space guards at each floor.

Living a Full Life With Limited Mobility: Here’s How

Getting out of the house and getting fresh air can do wonders for someone with limited mobility

In 2017, the CDC reported that 16% of American adults live with limited mobility. Our goal is to make life more comfortable for those who are living with limited mobility with our home modification devices. We know that physical limitations affect people regardless of age, both mentally and emotionally. We also know that there are many ways to live a full life with limited mobility. Here’s how. 

Take the Time to Travel

Mobility scooters, (offered by our sister company Preferred Mobility) make it easier to navigate virtually anywhere and promote independence and freedom. Getting out of the house and enjoying some sunshine and fresh air is invaluable. Mobility scooters also make it easier to travel to vacation destinations. Because airports and most businesses design their buildings with accessibility in mind, it makes traveling a lot more comfortable. Take a trip and travel to the place that you’ve always imagined.

Maintain An Independent Lifestyle 

With limited mobility, living a full and self-sufficient life is possible. One way to make this possible is by contacting us. Here we provide home elevators, stairlifts, wheelchair lifts, and dumbwaiters that will make navigating through your home more convenient and comfortable. 

Another way to live an independent lifestyle is by investing in technology. Home automation has become increasingly popular. You can control the light settings in your home and windows, all with a touch of a button or voice control. Smart kitchen appliances even exist where you can program when you want your oven to preheat. Smart homes are indeed worth researching. 

Two other ideas that will help you maintain an independent lifestyle is by scheduling food deliveries as well as scheduling transportation so that you can continue your routine as usual.  

Never Stop Learning

Carrying on with the pursuit of knowledge can benefit anyone. Develop a new skill, take on a new hobby, or learn a new language (or two or three!). Taking on a new challenge keeps the mind agile and can help you feel accomplished. Joining a new club is also a way to keep the brain sharp and connect with others who enjoy a particular activity just as much as you do. 

Other Tips

  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help
  • Join groups on social media to vent about any experiences or frustrations
  • Research, then write down a list of local resources that can help you with specific needs
