Are you hosting Christmas for the entire family this year? If so, a lot of responsibility falls on you to make sure everything is decorated, wrapped and prepared. With all of this going on, it's easy to forget about unique situations that arise. Many families have a parent, grandparent, aunt/uncle, etc. bound to a wheelchair or scooter. If this family member hasn't been using a mobility device for very long, it's even easier to forget to take safety measures into consideration.
In this blog, we'll discuss the benefits of a portable ramp and how they help your loved one this Christmas and for many holidays to come!
Our portable ramps are extremely sturdy and durable. When your loved one gets on the ramp, they will feel comfortable and safe as they approach your home. As they get off of the ramp, an easy access zero-threshold will make entering the home safer. They won't need to worry about a dangerous lip or step awaiting them.
Our portable ramps provide individuals with a sense of independence. Stairs are a constant obstacle that many senior citizens and wheelchair-bound individuals face on a daily basis. Most of the time, they need assistance get up and down stairs. With our portable ramps, your loved one can enter and leave your home with little to no assistance (depending on the situation). Seemingly small acts of independence can go a long way in boosting their confidence... especially during a large family gathering.
The beauty of a portable ramp is you can put it in place when you need it and put it away when you don't! If you have family gatherings multiple times per year, a portable ramp is an investment that you and your loved one will reap the benefits of for a long time. If you have multiple entrances to your home with different heights, you can select a couple of different sized ramps to create the safest environment possible!
