Vertical platform lifts
A vertical platform lift is an accessibility product that is designed to take you vertically from one level to another level. Much like an elevator, but for shorter distances. They can be used inside a home or outside. They are also commonly referred to as a “porch lift”, “wheelchair lift” or “wheelchair porch lift”, since often you see them used to get people from the ground level up to a porch on their home.
If you’ve never experienced roll-out shelves, you are in for a treat. Not only do these shelves make getting to everything in your cabinets easier, they also help you keep it better organized.
Roll-out shelves are perfect for someone who has a difficult time bending or reaching to get things in a cabinet. They are a simple and affordable way to make your kitchen work easier, can help protect you from injuring yourself.
These pull-out shelves can hold anything from heavy kitchen equipment to spices, and everything in between. We can custom configure the shelving system, allowing us to create the exact solution you need for the way you work in your kitchen.
They may seem like a luxury, but you really have to experience using them to understand just how much they can contribute to your kitchen. Our roll-out shelving systems help you tame those kitchen cabinets, providing a shelf that glides gently open and closed.
At Safe Living Solutions, we are committed to helping prevent falls in the homes of our clients. One way we do that is by installing handrails for our customers where they need them the most.
Our handrails can help create a much safer home environment for older clients, those with specific physical needs or who have limited mobility.
Handrails prevent injury at home every day across America, providing support to people who may be susceptible to falling at home. They also can help make transfers and keeping your balance easier.
We have a great selection of hand rails and are able to create a customized installation in your home. Our handrails and hand rail systems are compliant with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. They also come in a variety of colors and finishes to match your home.
As with many accessible home features, grab bar installation is something you want done by someone who is very experienced. At Safe Living Solutions, we have decades of experience specifying and installing grab bars for our customers.
Done well and done right, every time.
We offer a big selection of grab bars from some of the biggest names in the business. And, they are available in many different styles, finishes and textures. We can help you choose not only the right type of bar, but can also guide you in selecting the ones that will look nice in your home.
Despite what some might say, grab bars are a smart product to have in any home. They provide a balance and safety feature that will help keep anyone safer at home, from kids to older adults.
For folks who have specific accessibility needs (such as using a wheelchair), grab bars are a must to help keep you safe around the house. (Especially in the bathroom!)
Our Certified Aging in Place Specialists (CAPS) are ready to help you equip your home with the perfect grab bars for your home.
One of the most requested features by our bathroom remodeling clients are accessible showers. Sometimes called roll-in showers or barrier-free showers, these showers can be crafted to be wheelchair accessible, or just make bathing easier, more safe and much more enjoyable.
You see, these barrier free showers remove the transition from the main bathroom floor to the shower area. Which means, you don’t have to step to get into the shower. They also can be customized with additional products or features, such as:
- Built-in seats
- Slip-resistant tile
- Easy-to-use controls
- Multiple shower heads
- Grab bars
- And, more!
Having a barrier-free shower in your bathroom will improve the bathing experience for nearly anyone, including caregivers.
Our team of accessible remodeling specialists can help you decide on a design, configuration, features and products that will make your bathroom what you need it to be.
Walk-in tubs are a popular alternative to standard tubs, wherein there is a door built into the side of the tub that allows easy access to get in and out of the tub. These tubs are often a good choice for older adults or those with mobility issues, who want to enjoy bathing, but increase safety.
We have years of experience guiding our clients through the process of choosing the right walk-in tub, to having it professionally installed by our team.
The walk-in tubs we offer are ADA compliant and are designed to fit into most bathrooms.
If you are looking for a way to increase bathroom safety, while adding a feature that will most surely increase the experience of bathing, a walk-in tub may be for you.
Tub to shower conversions
Our tub to shower conversion service adds a step-in shower to your existing bathroom, which will provide greater accessibility and improve bathroom safety for everyone in your home. There are two primary tub to shower conversions we use:
Tub-cut – We cut a space out of your tub that allows you to easily step through the tub, converting your tub into a walk-in shower. This option is very affordable and provides the benefits of a walk-in shower, without some of the costs associated with removing and remodeling your entire shower area. (Please note: this option is not barrier-free.)
Shower stall installation – We remove your existing tub, make any necessary wall repairs and replace the entire surface with an accessible shower stall. We offer several different wall materials, such as fiberglass, cultured marble and tile.
Shower stall installation can be done on wood floor joists or concrete floors.
Raised height toilets
Typically, standard toilets are 14.5 to 15.5 inches from floor to the top, which doesn’t include the seat. Having a toilet that can seat you a little higher than that can provide benefits for nearly anyone, because it makes it easier to sit and stand.
One common option to raise the height of a toilet is to purchase a comfort height toilet or ADA compliant height toilet. These toilets are between 16.5 and 18 inches tall (not including the seat). By switching out your toilet, you can increase the height of the seat 2 to 3 inches, which can have a big impact on how easy it is to sit or stand-up from the toilet.
These Comfort height toilets are so mainstream now that government regulations require most public restrooms to use them.
These toilets are perfect for anyone who has hip, knee or other joint issues. As well as, people who use a walker or wheelchair. When you use them in conjunction with properly installed grab bars, that can make the experience in the bathroom so much easier and safe.
Roll-under sinks can be added to a bathroom or kitchen for several reasons. One, so that people using a wheelchair can use them easily. And, two, so a person who is unable to stand for longer periods of time (or, just would prefer to sit) can sit. Sometimes, people have them installed so they can have a sit-down vanity or do dishes without having to stand.
individuals in wheelchairs can use it. Adjustable-height sinks that raise and lower with the touch of a button are also an option.
When you install a roll-under sink, there are many ways to treat the look of the design so it melds perfectly into the rest of the room. You also can install cabinets next to the opening, providing storage to either side of the sitting area. (A great options for that sit-down vanity.)
Though it doesn’t typically look as nice, you also can opt to have a wall-mounted sink installed, which can give you the roll-under or sit-down area under the sink.
Safe Living Solutions can provide and install these and many other products to make your home more accessible and easier to use.
