OTHER REHABILITATION ISSUES IN SCI: HOME SAFETY AND MODIFICATIONS
HOME SAFETY AND MODIFICATIONS
In most cases, your house, apartment, condominium, or
townhouse will need to be modified to be fully accessible and continue to
be your home. Since the modifications are best made while you are in
rehabilitation, it is advisable to get started on them as soon as possible.
Making changes is not always as complex as it may appear. Simply selecting
a certain product or installing a new device is sometimes all that is needed
to enable you to live safely and with the greatest amount of independence.
Following are features of the various areas of your living space that are
well suited to people with a SCI.
