How to Decide Which Ramp is Best for You

How to Decide Which Ramp is Best for You

With the beautiful weather outdoors, now is the perfect time to assess your home or business to see if any changes or additions need to be made. One thing to think about is accessibility. Here are a few questions to ask yourself to know if you need to install a ramp for your home or business. 

Do I have a business with stairs? 

If you are a business owner, it’s important to have a business that is accessible to everyone. Even if it’s not someone in a wheelchair, you could have an older customer who finds stairs difficult, so a ramp is easier for them to get into the business. All in all – if your business has stairs, be sure to add a ramp. 

Where does this need to be installed? 

Do you have an outdoor ramp that needs to be installed? Or are you looking for a mobility solution indoors or just for a little boost within a threshold? Think about what you need exactly so you can find a solution that best fits your needs. 

Am I or a loved one staying in this home for a long time? 

If you or a loved one plans on aging in place, it’s great to add more accessibility options to the home. This increases safety as well as independence. As you or your loved one ages, this means a walker, rollator or wheelchair may come into play so having a ramp will lessen the accessibility gap. 

Do I or a loved one currently have limited mobility? 

If you or a loved one already has trouble walking, going up stairs or is in a wheelchair currently, there is a big need for the ramp to be installed sooner rather than later.  

Is this a short- or long-term solution? 

Are you or a loved one going to be in the home for a long time or is this a short-term solution needed for someone who may be in a wheelchair due to an injury for example? Figure out which situation you are in so you can talk to professionals and explain what you’re looking for.
