People are staying in their homes rather than moving to assisted living facilities. This shift has heightened the necessity for home mobility modifications.

RALEIGH, NC, UNITED STATES, July 10, 2024 / — With a significant increase in the elderly population opting to age in place, the demand for home accessibility solutions like stair lifts and residential elevators is on the rise. Godwin Elevator, a leading provider of home accessibility solutions in North Carolina, is addressing this growing need by offering comprehensive services to help homeowners modify their residences for wheelchair accessibility and other mobility enhancements.

As the American population ages, more individuals are choosing to stay in their homes rather than moving to assisted living facilities. This shift has heightened the necessity for modifications that cater to mobility needs, including the installation of elevators and stair lifts. Godwin Elevator has become a trusted partner in this area, helping thousands of homeowners transform their living spaces to accommodate wheelchairs, walkers, and other assistive devices.

Enhancing Home Accessibility

Creating a wheelchair-accessible home goes beyond installing an entrance ramp. Godwin Elevator provides a holistic approach to ensure homes are fully accommodating and compliant with the latest Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) codes. Key considerations for wheelchair accessibility include:

– Doorways: Ensuring they are wide enough and removing any steps or bumps between rooms.
– Flooring: Opting for low-pile carpet, hardwoods, laminate, vinyl, or large ceramic tiles for ease of mobility and maintenance.
– Heights: Lowering eyeholes in doors and adjusting counter heights in kitchens and bathrooms.
– Space: Providing ample room for wheelchairs to turn, especially in bathrooms.
– Switches and Outlets: Positioning them within easy reach.
– Stairways: Installing stair lifts or elevators to make all levels of the home accessible.
– Safety Bars: Adding them in bathrooms and other useful locations.
– Ramps: Constructing ramps with railings and a 1:12 slope ratio, ensuring a 5×5-foot area at both the top and bottom.

“More homes are now being built with elevators, even those with just two or three stories,” said James Godwin, President of Godwin Elevator. “As our population ages, these features make multi-story living feasible and add value to homes without a first-floor master bedroom.”

Certified and Quality Elevator Installations

With approximately 90 percent of residential elevators in North Carolina installed by un-certified technicians, Godwin Elevator emphasizes the importance of professional, certified installation to avoid safety risks and potential costly repairs. Using NEIEP and QEI certified technicians for both commercial and residential elevator installations, Godwin Elevator ensures that every project meets the highest standards of quality and safety.
