There is a very likely chance that there are parts of your home that are not accessible to an individual who suffers from a disability. Indeed, most homes have stairs, high countertops in bathrooms and kitchens, cabinets that require a stretch to reach, raised tubs and showers, and more. For those in a wheelchair, with mobility issues, who are worried about falls, and those suffering from other health conditions and disabilities, things that you don’t think twice about can be a huge barrier to mobility and comfort.
Which is why transforming your home into one that is accessible for those with disabilities can be a worthwhile investment, particularly if you have a disabled person in your home or are aging yourself. Of course, businesses are also required to comply with ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) accessibility standards. At Doppler Construction, Inc., we can help.
While private homeowners are not required to meet ADA guidelines, they may choose to make ADA accessible remodels if they have a disabled person in their family. Many businesses, on the other hand, including small business, do have to meet federal ADA guidelines in order to help disabled persons participate in everyday activities, like going out to eat or buying groceries. What is required is what is “readily achievable,” which means that larger businesses have a greater duty than do smaller businesses. That being said, even small businesses may be asked to install a ramp to become more accessible to those in wheelchairs, for example.
Homeowners may also want ramps on their property, as well as a number of other features that can make a home more comfortable, accessible, and safe for a person with a disability. These features might include, but are not limited to:
If you’re on the fence about an ADA accessible remodel in Munster, consider the quality of life improvements that an ADA accessible home can have for an individual.
