By planning ahead and making adjustments for your future needs, you can improve your quality of life and remain more independent and engaged.
Being one step ahead can make life a little easier—and more enjoyable.
Making the right changes to your home can help you live more safely and independently. Home modifications can be as simple as setting up portable ramps or as involved as remodeling a bathroom.
With some advance planning, you can visit family, meet up with a friend, or go to a movie. Options include hiring a handicap-friendly ride service or buying a handicap-accessible van. Changing your scenery is an important part of staying engaged in life.
Though it will take more patience and planning, you should be able to travel. If a loved one can drive, you can rent a handicap-accessible van and take a road trip. If you can sit in an airplane seat, you can fly. Why not visit loved ones or experience a new destination?
