Our Showroom: Helping Our Community Choose Aging in Place Tools
The Oakley Home Access team is happy to see more places opening up as pandemic restrictions ease. During those restrictions, we kept our showroom open and available for clients throughout the year while maintaining strict precautions. For those that may have delayed coming in to see the items that we have on display, we invite you to visit our showroom and test out the equipment which may be beneficial for you at home.
Our showroom is Located at 322 South Pier Road in Narragansett, Rhode Island, and features a variety of products that we offer to maximize mobility and age in place. The showroom is open Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 4 PM.. Visitors are encouraged to visit, try the products, and become comfortable with these valuable tools before having them installed. Currently in our showroom we offer the opportunity to view and possibly try the following products.
Visitors can see and utilize a convertible tub-cut and learn how these work to help prevent falls and injuries. The tubcut reduces the overall height of the tub wall for a shower transfer, and coming in to test the equipment ensures the modified height is appropriate for you or your loved one. Also on display are a variety of other safety devices including grab bars, curved shower rods, mobile shower heads, and seating for bathing (chairs,stools, and benches).
Mobility, Adaptive, and Accessibility Equipment
Vertical Platform Lift– For those with mobility issues that require the use of a wheelchair, the installation of a vertical platform lift can mean accessibility to otherwise inaccessible homes. These types of lifts are usually installed outside or in a garage. Clients can try the device and see how easy it is to use and how much it can improve mobility.
Stairlifts- If you or a loved one have difficulty getting up and down the stairs, a stairlift can be the solution. A stairlift can increase safety and accessibility while facilitating aging in place. We can show you how to use one and also explain how a stairlift is installed.
Aluminum Modular Ramp Systems- Aluminum ramps are modular and customizable to virtually any situation and they are easily removable and can be moved from home to home. Aluminum ramps are safer in rainy or snowy conditions and have a textured surface that will help wheelchair users and caregivers. Visitors can learn more and see how the ramps fit together and their benefits.
In addition, we also have portable ramps, overhead ceiling lift systems (including portable) and power lift recliners.
Funding and Grant Information
In addition to learning about the equipment, we are here to educate and discuss possible grants and other funding options to help with affording these home modifications. Our team is dedicated in guiding you through all steps of the process, from understanding grant paperwork, to searching our alternative funding sources.
We invite you to come for a visit and see how Oakley Home Access can help you meet your Aging In Place and home Modification goals. Our office staff are highly knowledgeable to guide you through the visit. Alternatively, if you make a scheduled appointment we can ensure one of our assessors is present for your visit to give you a more in depth understanding of the products.
