Home modifications

As we get older most of us want to stay in our homes as long as we can. Many times there are common modifications that can make our home safer.

Some of the most common home modifications are installation of grab bars in a shower or bathtub, installation of ramps and making cabinets easier to open.

Occupational therapists (OT) can be a good source for info on home modifications. An OT can go through a home and conduct an assessment of modifications that can be helpful.

A key factor is to find a qualified contractor – a licensed contractor. The National Association of Home Builders website provides a locator for finding qualified contractors.
