As we grow older, it often becomes more difficult not only to get up in the morning but also to get around the house. Whether a senior lives in a ranch or two-story home, chances are he or she has to climb at least a couple of stairs to enter their home. Although they may not use a wheelchair, there are many benefits of having a wheelchair ramp installed outside a front, side, or patio door.
- The first benefit is mobility. Stairs provide obstacles not just for seniors in wheelchairs but also for those who use a walker or cane. A ramp allows the senior to get in and out of the house with ease.
- The second benefit is safety. Steps or a rocky walkway can be dangerous for a senior using a cane or walker to get around. A wheelchair ramp provides a safe, smooth walking path for seniors that reduces the risk of falls and injury.
