When buying or designing a home for a child with special accessibility needs, it is extremely difficult in a traditional home layout. The goal is to create a home that meets your child’s specific needs, and catered to their level of physical abilities, in turn helping families live more easily.
Common recommendations are open floor plans with fewer walls as not to obstruct movement. Wider walls and hallways allow for wheelchairs to fit if needed, as well as allowing side-by-side walking. Consider adding motion sensors for better lighting which ensures the hallways are consistently lit. Adding handles on both sides of the staircase allow for better alignment. The bathroom should have grab bars near the shower, tub, and toilet seat. The shower itself should allow for a seat for better comfort and safety needs. At minimum, the doors should be 32-34 inches to allow ample space for a wheelchair to turn freely. In the living room, sturdy furniture with arms as assistance for sitting/standing, are favored. Lighting should be avoided at eye-level and include dimmers, with no exposed bulbs.
With just a few changes, your home will be able to accommodate those with special needs. It is important to receive input from any specialist and/or doctors involved with the care of your loved one or yourself. Make sure to discuss the specific changes and needs with your builder in order to guarantee the correct fit for your family’s needs.
When does it make sense to move instead of remodeling? When the cost to change the home reaches greater than its worth. Widening the hallways and doorways, having bathrooms which are not large enough, or when the home is in a noisy location are all huge construction changes. In this instance, families need to start shopping for a new home that is either completed, or can be more easily changed to accommodate everyone’s needs and adapt to the children’s changing needs as they grow.
If you have any questions or are interested, I will be happy to give you a few competitive market analysis (CMA) in the current market environment that can help you make the right decision concerning your home and its value. I will do my best to help in finding a contractor and/or getting the right home that suits you and your family’s needs.
