We often get to work with fantastic customers on amazing jobs; this week was no exception.
This last week Access Options, Inc. was able to install an Extended Vertical Lift and Custom Modular Ramp for a wonderful client. Vertical lifts give wheelchair users a better way in to and out of their residential homes as such devices allows them to be raised from the ground up on their elevated (or with steps ) front porches. In the case of our client, the lift gave her entry to parts of the house she previously could not access on her own.
Previously it was difficult for our client to maneuver around her home on her own. We were able to recommend and install some EZ Access Transition Mats and a Custom Modular Ramp, and now there isn’t anywhere in the home she can’t navigate.

The leaves have already started to change, pumpkin patches are all around, Halloween is just around the corner and the fall season is in full swing. This cool, refreshing weather can be a great time to go on a road trip through the states with friends. Road trips can be challenging for drivers with disabilities because of the hours in a wheelchair accessible vehicle and the preparation needed before the trip. However, road trips can be a great way to spend quality time this fall season. Here are some ways to make the trip more easygoing for everyone.
Sketch out and plan your destination. The fall season can be different depending on which states you wish to go to. Take a road trip to the chilly and vibrant city of New York or Seattle. If you are looking for a more scenic road trip, consider taking a drive through the Great Smoky Mountains, Glacier National Park, or New Hampshire and Vermont. Once you pick your destination make sure to check the weather forecast as it gets closer to the date; this will help you prepare accordingly.
Planning your trip in advance can help you avoid potential obstacles during your trip. Search for hotels, attractions, and activities near your destination that offer accommodations for people with disabilities. It is more convenient to do this ahead of time because it will help them provide the best possible service and will save you the trouble of trying to find the ideal places to visit last minute. Making sure your wheelchair accessible vehicle is in good condition for the road is essential. All of the vehicle conversions need to be in acceptable conditions for the road, especially for long road trips. Wheelchair restraints and other items used to accommodate people with disabilities should be checked for safety.
Fun, Food, and Comfort
One of the most important aspects of road trips is to remember to have fun! Bringing blankets and pillows can help make everyone feel at home and be more comfortable during the trip. Be sure to bring loose or breathable clothing; it will come in handy for those long hours on the road. Avoid tight jeans or clothing that is too snug on your body. Bringing snacks to eat along the way can be a great way to save money. Pack snacks like trail mix, cut or mini veggies, PB&J sandwiches, or other snacks that are easy to eat on the go.
When taking road trips with your loved ones, make sure to keep these tips in mind.
