The purpose of building a balcony is to create a space to rotate with a wheelchair. The goal is to provide the wheelchair user with the ability to turn around as soon as they exit the lift platform for easy access.
As part of the home adaptation program offered by the Société d’Habitation du Québec, grants are available for these types of projects. For example, having a small balcony built or modified in the garage will help the person with reduced mobility to get in and out of their home. It is also possible to modify the front or rear balconies, as well as access through the doors to create an entry without threshold. Many other options are available. The assessment by an occupational therapist will make it possible to obtain a grant.
Used equipment is also available. For more information, please contact us.
