Accessibility & Mobility
There comes a point in the lives of many people when they must choose to remain at home or move into an assisted living facility. This is an especially pressing dilemma for those with mobility issues. Rather than paying the cost of a monitored care facility, it may be possible to renovate you home to make it more accessible. This can allow you or your aging relative to stay home. At General Plumbing, Inc., we do more than plumbing and remodeling in West Palm Beach. We also help to create accessible homes that are safer and easier to get around in for people of any age or ability.
When it comes to safety modifications for the home, there are many things to consider. We can install the CARESSE+ system that includes devices to turn off stoves if left unattended, and monitor movement in the house. An alarm sends a signal to a monitoring center to provide help when a fall, change in any critical vital signs, fire, flood, or extreme temperatures occur.
Other means of making the home accessible also include adding fixtures to the plumbing that prevent scalding from excessively hot water or allow a tub or shower to be entered into more easily. If you are interested in improving the safety of your home for all the household members, not just those with mobility issues, contact us for more information on how we can help.
A home should be the most comfortable place you are in, even if you or a loved one has problems moving around. Rather than leaving that place of comfort, adapt it to lifestyle changes to make it safer and more accessible. If you would like to make your home more accessible and allow for in-home health care instead of a nursing home, contact us at General Plumbing, Inc. at 561-420-0442.
