Local handyman skilled in universal design strategies makes bathroom more handicap accessible adding features including a walk in tub or roll-in shower with very strong grab bars
Columbus, OH — The bathroom is one room that presents the leading challenge to elderly citizens or those who live with different physical disabilities. The local handyman is specifically trained in senior redesigning so he can add features to enhance accessibility and mobility in the bathroom. These customizations performed by the Columbus walk in bathtub installer can make a big difference in the lives of aging residents who desire to live at home rather than moving to an assisted care establishment.
Tom Mills, owner of HandyPro Handyman Service provides home modification to help solve many of the most widespread bathroom problems, including small bathrooms with an inconvenient design. The bathtub, toilet and sink aligned along one wall or the tub and shower unit on one side, with vanity and toilet across from it leaving very little room in the middle makes navigating challenging for people using walkers or wheelchairs. The narrow entrances don’t make life easy either.
People with practical objectives often make the matter more severe when they add grab bars and hand rails but do not adequately secure them. This could be hazardous to the disabled person who relies on them for support. An incorrectly installed grab bar is often more dangerous than not having one at all. Towel bars should also be installed with fasteners designed to hold more weight, especially if they are situated where may be grabbed.
The local handyman offers senior home customization with universal design standards to provide the ideal solution. There are multiple ways to solve accessibility and mobility problems in the home including adding another bathroom or redesigning the existing bathroom to satisfy the individual needs of the resident. Solutions presented by the walk in bathtub Columbus pros at HandyPro Handyman Services consist of:
• Larger access door utilizing lever-style handles in place of traditional door knobs
• Sufficient floor space surrounding and leading to tub, shower, sink and toilet
• Wheelchair accessible with sufficient turn-around space
• Roll-in shower or walk-in bath
• Sink constructed with leg room under it for seated use
For many people on a fixed income a thorough bathroom remodel is out of the question; however, there are plenty of quick and easy solutions that can make a difference like rounded corners, slip-resistant floor covering, single lever faucet handles and sensible lighting with rocker style switches. HandyPro will send their highly trained bathroom conversion contractor to provide a free assessment and consultation to come up with the system that works best for the owner and meets their budget.
