There’s little question that the men and women of our armed forces do so much to keep our nation free and safe. Oftentimes, their brave decision to defend our country can come at a great cost, leaving many veterans with mobility limitations. Such restrictions can make it challenging for veterans to complete some everyday tasks in their own home, such as bathing in a safe manner. Having a handicap accessible home can make life much simpler for these brave men and women. Let’s take a look at some of the home improvement projects that veterans may find beneficial.
A Bathroom Remodel
One facet of the home that poses a great potential risk to veterans is the bathroom. Traditional bathtubs feature high-threshold walls, which can be dangerous for people with limited mobility, as it can be difficult to step over without tripping. Additionally, bathtubs and showers are arguably the one area in a home where a slip and fall is most likely to occur. If you are a veteran, or someone in your household is a veteran with limited mobility, swapping out your high-wall bathtub with a walk-in bathtub or shower can make bathing more accessible and ultimately more enjoyable. And when you turn to the professionals at Dreamstyle Remodeling for a low-basin bathtub or replacement shower, you’ll have access to numerous additional safety feature options including handrails and fold-down shower seating.
A Kitchen Remodel
Having a kitchen where pots and pans are stored high and out of arms reach can make preparing even the simplest of meals difficult for a veteran with limited mobility. When you invest in a kitchen remodel from Dreamstyle Remodeling, you can sit back and relax while we replace high cabinets with lower, more easily accessible storage options. We’ll even assist you in selecting new appliances for your kitchen that make cooking and eating a breeze, such as a side-by-side refrigerator rather than a traditionally stacked model.
