Make Your Front Door Accesible with a Wheelchair Lift
Last week we shared how incorporating a ramp into the design of your home creates a zero-step entrance making it visitable, and this week we want to share an additional option. Just as a ramp can create a zero-step entrance to the front of your home, so can a front door wheelchair lift. Depending on your needs, a customizable wheelchair lift may be the choice for your home.
In visitability front door lifts are used to create zero-step entrances, provide independent mobility and to limit the amount of work placed on the disabled. Unlike ramps where one must physically make their way up to the front door often with help for maneuvering turns, wheelchair lifts literally do all the work. One must simply roll on to the lift, make sure the chair is secured, and wait for the lift to bring them to the door.
