A wheelchair or a scooter can be an invaluable mobility solution for you or your loved one when your mobility has been limited. Unfortunately, although you now have more freedom to move, this freedom may be limited by some new obstacles in your own home. Things like steps and raised thresholds between rooms can make it difficult to get in and out of the house independently. The solution is to install an outdoor ramp system, but what if your mobility limitations are temporary? Did you know you can rent a ramp for as long as you need? At Freedom Mobility we offer wheelchair ramp rental in Maryland, which comes with professional installation and dismantling. Here are a few situations when ramp rental may be the perfect solution to your mobility needs.
You or Your Loved One is Recovering
If you or your loved one is recovering from an accident or a recent surgery, the likelihood is that you will need a ramp to safely enter your home. However, if recovery is imminent and mobility will be restored, installing a permanent ramp may not be necessary. Ramp rental is a great and inexpensive alternative in this situation.
You Have a Physically Disabled Visitor
You work hard to make your home feel welcoming and inviting for your guests. You’ve made sure the floors are spotless, the shelves have been dusted, and the air is replete with the smell of a home-cooked meal. The only problem is that your home isn’t easily accessible via a wheelchair, but your guests require one for mobility. That’s a tough dilemma! Ramp rental won’t require any permanent modifications and will assure that your guests can enter your home with ease.
You Don’t Own Your Home
A large portion of the U.S. population doesn’t own a home, whether it’s for financial or lifestyle reasons. And if you live in a rental, you are probably not allowed to make any permanent modifications to the place. Besides, it wouldn’t be practical and financially reasonable to invest in a property you will be bound to leave at some point. Ramp rental is a great alternative in this case, especially if it’s a short-term rental situation, such as a vacation home. For a long-term rental solution, it may be better to find a home that is fully ADA-accessible.
