  •  Improving the access inside the home with installation of a stair glide or elevator.
  •  Improving the access in the bathroom by installation of bathroom equipment or complete renovation.
  •  Installation of overhead lifts for bed to wheelchair transfers or wheelchair to commode transfers.
  •  Recommendations for new home construction for doorway widths, counter heights, cabinet design etc.
