Modifications to the home environment can allow those with disabilities and elderly adults to remain independent in their own homes. Some of these modifications might include installing ramps, enlarging doorways for wheelchair access, modifying a kitchen to make it more accessible, installing emergency communication systems, and so forth.

According to the CDC, one of the leading causes of injury to elderly adults and those with disabilities is falling in their home. National Home Modifications can send a representative into the home to point out hazards that could cause a person to trip and fall, such as a curled rug, electric lines across the floor, poor lighting, clutter, and other easily remedied hazards.
In addition to alleviating safety hazards, simple modifications may be needed such as installing grab bars in the bathroom, hand rails on both sides of staircases, easy-grip handles, or lever-type faucets that are easy to turn on and off.
