Promoting a barrier free home

Home modification is the process of converting or adapting the environment in order to perform tasks easier and more safely to support independent living.

Minor home modifications might include:

  • grab bars

  • hand rails

  • modified light switches

  • modified faucets

  • hand held shower heads

  • shower seats

  • lever door handles

  • raised toilet seats

  • or moving around furniture. 

Major home modifications might include: 

  • installing a ramp

  • widening doorways

  • changing kitchen appliances

  • installing a stair lift

  • or renovating/adding a first floor full bathroom

It is also important to consider basic home repairs such as flooring, plumbing or lighting and to check the security and hazard detection in the home such as door locks and carbon monoxide detectors.

Some of the most common problems in the home and accessibility concerns include: 

  • getting in and out of the home

  • navigation in the home with mobility aids

  • managing tasks and access in the bathroom

There are many different reasons and benefits for having modifications made to your home: 

  • Quality of Life

  • Home Safety and Fall Prevention

  • Reduction of healthcare costs and delay of institutionalization

  • Home visitability 

  • Decreased care giver burden by increasing independence

Several individuals can especially benefit from home modifications: 

  • Older adults who want to age in place

  • Families who have children with disabilities

  • Adults with disabilities

  • Baby boomers planning for the future

  • Any individual after an accident or illness
