Add accessible door handles
Door knobs. 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, presenting a challenge to people with arthritis or poor balance. This is why you rarely if ever see traditional door knobs 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 about $12.
