Add accessible door handles
Doorknobs: They may look like a simple aesthetic choice at first glance, but they also can matter a lot when you’re aging.
Traditional knobs require tight grasping and a twisting motion, which can pose a challenge to people with arthritis or poor balance. This is why you rarely if ever see traditional doorknobs in public buildings. They don’t meet the accessibility requirements of the Americans With Disabilities Act.
Lever door handles are easier to grip. They function more simply, opening a door with the weight of your hand. What’s more, stylish levers update the look of your home.
Cost: At Amazon, door levers start at less than $20.
