  • Home Access for Everyone

    Lea Ann Skogsberg, Founder, Dollars and Sense

    The number one desire of people as we age is to remain in our own homes. Yet many of us are one mobility impairment away from not even being able to enter or exit our homes. This challenge for society will continue to grow as Baby Boomers age. Most needs are short-term yet most commercial answers require permanent changes to a property making them undesirable to homeowners and impossible for renters. MORE >

    There is a community-based solution to address this growing need to make home accessibility affordable for everyone. If you ever carried anyone into your home for a Holiday meal or experienced even "minor" surgery that affected mobility, you'll know why this is such an important topic.

    Ramps provide access for people with both temporary and long-term mobility issues. Yet while Medicare and Medicaid as well as private insurance programs underwrite the wheelchairs, walkers and assistive devices individuals require for mobility—except in some cases for veterans—there is no standard way to acquire and/or pay for the ramps. This concept, a community-based inventory of modular ramps, seeks to establish a pilot project to demonstrate the value of borrowing (rather than owning) home access products. Rentals respond to occasional as well as temporary needs for residential ramps. Except for the screws, each component is reusable; the units are American made.
