When your day to day life doesn’t include a wheelchair, do you really notice what could cause issues for those who depend on wheelchairs? Think about your home and the daily tasks you do there. Simply getting into your home can be problematic for someone in a wheelchair. If there are steps leading up to the door, without a ramp, visitors in a wheelchair will not be able to access your home.
And don’t think that ramps are just for people in wheelchairs. Having a gradual incline instead of steps makes it easier for those with other frailties, including those on crutches and other medical devices that make it difficult to move around. Ramps don’t have to be ugly either, as there are many designs and varieties to meet your needs and décor.

Wheelchair Ramps Add Value To Your Home Or Business
While many people think that having a wheelchair ramp detracts from the value of a home or business, the opposite is actually true. For example, a wheelchair ramp at your home makes it more attractive to a wider audience when it comes time to sell because the potential buyer doesn’t have to worry about adding one themselves. And if they have a family member or friend who is in a wheelchair, that makes the home more inviting.
