Home Mobility Solutions
It was a day of frustration for a gentleman celebrating his 90th birthday. He was in the kitchen of his home, straining to reach the cabinet where his glasses were. His fingers have become almost useless, and his right arm hung from a tear in his rotator cuff. Just brushing his hair that morning was a struggle. “It makes me mad,” he said, “what my life had turned into.” The unfortunate effects of aging have taken a toll. Looking at it from a different perspective, this was just another day in the long and happy life he’s lived “I’ve had a good life,” he said quietly as he began reminiscing and reflecting back upon his life, remembering his younger years, his successes and the high points of his life, which became more vivid to him than his recent past. “Things have just become hard,” he added. This story is as heartbreaking as it is true for many seniors today.
The reality is many 0f us will experience at least a temporary disability during our lifetime.

When patients experience new limitations they need help maintaining a safe home environment to preserve their comfort and independence. Patients often have little time to decide how to address the limitations of newly-acquired disabilities. Some may choose to use contractors through The ADA or Americans with Disabilities Act. The ADA ensures access to the built environment for people with restrictions and establishes design requirements for the construction and alteration of facilities subject to the law.
