Modifying your home might be necessary when the home no longer meets the needs of those who live there. For someone in a wheelchair, it might mean building a ramp or widening the doorways. For someone who has difficulty walking, it might mean adding rails by stairs or installing grab bars in the bathroom.
The goal is to create a space where routine activities can be done safely and as independently as possible.
