For accessibility in everyday life

At the latest when mobility decreases due to age or illness-related restrictions, the accessibility of one's own living environment becomes much more important. For people in need of care, barrier-free conversions are often essential in order to maintain unrestricted access to basic needs and amenities within their own four walls.

Even though the focus of such conversions is often on the bathroom, you should not forget that there are also other areas in your home that can benefit from appropriate changes: From widened doorways to the installation of ramps, there are numerous and varied ways to make your own home barrier-free.

Better at home is a specialist when it comes to accessibility. They carry out conversion measures in the living environment that increase the quality of life and the feeling of safety. A distinction is made between three areas: Basic, comfort and design solution. In this way, you are guaranteed the right and technically individualised equipment for barrier-free living. The entire process is accompanied by besser zuhause - from the first home consultation to the finished installation.

By the way: To support these so-called measures to improve the living environment, there are a number of possible subsidies and support programmes in Germany. The long-term care insurance fund, for example, grants up to € 4,000 per measure under certain conditions. But KfW funding programmes, state subsidies or other grants can also help to cover the costs of adapting the living space. It is best to find out directly from your nearest care counselling service about possible assistance for your individual situation and the respective requirements for entitlements.
