Accessible Entryways
Entryways are the first point of accessibility to any home and should be one of the first steps (or ramps) to an accessible home.


It all starts with the entrance.  We can design a safe entryway that is accessible by all.  Solutions include custom ramps constructed of brick pavers or other hardscapes, wood ramps, or modular aluminum ramps.  Safe entryways should also be well lit and include a "convenience shelf" for safe handling of packages while opening the door.

Furthermore, costs to make your home safer, they state, should be compared to the costs of assisted care. It is easy to see that the payback period is quite reasonable vis-a-vis the exorbitant and skyrocketing costs of assisted and at-home care services.
