Aging population, injury and physical ailments and Alberta Health encouraging transition to home care as soon as possible make handicap conversions more common today.
Home care is healthier but does require changes to most homes to make home care easier and safer for everyone involved.
With non-handicap bathrooms many families struggle with the physical aspects of limited mobility which can be a strain on everyone and can hinder quality care.
The three main goals of handicap conversion are:
- Independence and enhanced quality for the individual
- Easing the burden for family and care-givers.
- Safety and health for everyone concerned
HANDICAP BATHROOM FEATURES
Most conversions involve converting an existing main bathroom with tub, toilet and vanity.
Handicap renovations are similar to regular ones except special attention to meeting handicap standards.
Tub to Shower: Tub is converted to a shower – footprint stays the same. Special acrylic shower system is installed with a rod and curtain for best access. Built-in bench and shelves are standard – custom shower may be necessary and costs for this are slightly higher but will provide features required such as a totally flat shower pan.
Wall-Mounted Vanity: This allows the user to slide wheelchair/walker under the vanity much like a make-up table. Mirror, switches and plugs are all lowered making the vanity easy to use.
Toilet: Handicap standards require a higher elongated design toilet with grab bars – a variety of toilet models are available meeting these standards.
Accessories: Towel bars and hooks are set lower for easy access.
Entry door: Entry doors should swing out from the bathroom for safety and provide extra room inside – we install larger doors to provide best ease of access with wheelchair or walker.
Flooring: Non-slip bathroom flooring can be tile or vinyl – all colours and styles are available and special attention is paid to the non-slip aspect.
