Contractors

Enhance the value of the work you do with clients!

Most contractors have a list of generic recommendations to make a home “accessible” that focus on installing grab bars, ramps, or other wheelchair accessible features. However, designing for the variety of abilities and disabilities goes beyond the common, generic recommendations.  It is really about helping clients through a process of home modifications by becoming knowledgeable about common health conditions and concerns and how they affect daily life at home.  It is about knowing the right questions to ask with clients of all ages and abilities and potential solutions to offer.

Feel free to browse the free resources on this site, by health concerns or rooms of the house to get an idea of the information we have to share.

Continue to gain knowledge and increase the value of the services you offer to clients through in-depth resources available for purchase.
