Here are some simple steps to make your home more accessible if you’re living with someone who has disabilities or elderly. There are a number of trip hazards that should be addressed like throw rugs which can catch or slip under people. You can simply tape them down to prevent slippage and they can be removed easily. Using chairs with arms will help when getting out of the chair. In the kitchen purchasing large handle grips for tableware will help make life easier and also purchasing double handled pots and pans will help. Replacing knob handled door handles with the lever type will help those with arthritis. More complex projects will require installing grab bars in the shower area and near the toilet. Non slip table on the bottom of the tub or shower will also help prevent injuries.
