Home Modifications

 

In 1996, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development released the Fair Housing Act Design Manual, which was written to give home builders an understanding of the requirements to accommodate for Americans with disabilities. This was expounded upon most recently by the American Disabilities Act 2010 design standards, which further clarified the needs for home design that works for those with disabilities.

Each of these guides were made to assist with the unique needs of persons with disabilities, and it is required that builders stick to these guidelines while designing new homes. For those who are reaching a more advanced age, it is important to understand what modifications should be made to keep your home accessible at all times. These guidelines are very specific, and go over separate rooms in the home to make sure that everything is up to standard.

Here at Access Homes, we strive to provide the most up-to-date information for all homeowners, so that they have the practical information and advice needed to stay in their home. Our goal is to keep you informed and help you to find the best occupational therapists, nurses, and any other support services you might need. Perhaps more important, we hope to ensure that these home adjustments can help keep you in the home you have grown to love for as long as possible.

Whether it is the inevitable ticking away of time that has left you in need of these adjustments, or an accident that has caused your disability, we are there to guide you through the process of making the adjustment as smooth as possible.
