Help Your Aging Parent with ADA-Compliant Accessibility Solutions

Apr 17, 2023 | Children of Aging Parents

It can be challenging for aging parents with limited mobility to feel safe and comfortable at home. ADA-compliant accessibility products provide a solution, helping them remain independent longer by removing barriers from the home. But what does “ADA compliance” mean? In this article, we will explain why it is so important and explore our selection of accessible solutions, such as stairlifts and ramps designed specifically to meet your loved one’s needs while adhering to strict safety standards set out by The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA).

What is ADA Compliance and Why is it Important?

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guarantees people living with disabilities the same opportunities for access and inclusion as other members of society. Through this law, businesses, public entities, and private facilities must ensure equal rights through ADA-compliant solutions allowing individuals with disabilities to engage in everyday life.

With age comes more potential for mobility issues, but ADA-compliant accessibility solutions can greatly help aging parents. Not only do they make it easier and safer to move around their home, but these solutions offer peace of mind that your parent is always safe – according to CDC research, falls are one of the biggest health risks among older adults. In addition, installing things like stairlifts or ramps gives them back their independence, so they don’t have to rely on anyone else.

How Does ADA Compliance Pertain to Products Like Stairlifts and Ramps?

Investing in accessibility solutions such as stairlifts and ramps is more than simply a matter of convenience – it’s the law. By choosing ADA-compliant products, individuals with disabilities can enjoy safer access around their homes or businesses that meet all necessary legal standards for safety and comfort.

The law requires that these products have certain features, like non-slip surfaces on ramps or adjustable designs of stairlifts, so people with different body types can use them. Yet not all providers out there offer truly compliant products; it’s essential to partner up with a reputable provider with experience creating and supplying safe yet accessible solutions. And who can guarantee proper installation– so your investment has true long-term value.
