Hosting Accessible Outdoor Gatherings for the Family

Featured image for blog article: Hosting Accessible Outdoor Gatherings for the Family

We thought the time would never come, but the snow is finally melting!

That means soon we’ll have backyard barbecue weather and good grub on the grill. If you plan on hosting a few gatherings and have family or friends with mobility challenges on your invite list, consider implementing some accessible solutions to make their stay comfortable, and most importantly, safe.

Here’s what we recommend:

    Door Threshold Solutions

    It’s uncommon to have a perfectly level home that is free of obstacles such as raised thresholds in your doorways, especially at your front and back door.

    To avoid all the bumps that may be a potential tripping hazard, cause a rocky roll, or are difficult to step over, add an entry ramp, mat, or plate over the level change. This creates a smoother transition for individuals with limited mobility, especially for those using a wheelchair or walker. All of our threshold solutions can be used indoors or outdoors, depending on the needs of your house!

    Portable Ramps

    Portable ramps are foldable for easy maneuverability, set up, and storage.

    Use this access solution around the home for overcoming obstacles such as a front porch step. This is a great option if your family member or friend with limited mobility comes over frequently, or if you will travel with them to different locations during their visit. For transportability, we recommend any of the ramps from our SUITCASE collection.

We hope these tips help you and your family have a safe and care-free time together so you can relax and enjoy the company.
