Use a portable ramp
The elderly and the disabled will always have a hard time climbing stairs. This is especially the case if they use a wheelchair or walker. By installing a portable ramp, you make it easier and safer for them to move through the building. These also have added traction pads on the bottom to decrease the chances of slipping.
Doorbells and smoke detectors with lights
Do you have anyone whose hearing has started to fail? Install a doorbell that switches a light on whenever someone comes over. This will send an alert even if a resident can’t hear a doorbell.
A smoke detector can alert your loved ones, residents, or patients, of any carbon monoxide or smoke in the area. While those with difficulties hearing might not hear the warning of a traditional smoke detector, a specialised one with a bed shaker attachment and lights will be able to save these lives.
