101 Mobility is proud to help America’s Veterans. Under the Home Improvements and Structural Alterations (HISA), Veterans may receive “home improvements necessary for the continuation of treatment or for disability access to the home and essential lavatory and sanitary facilities.” We work with Veterans each and every day to help them improve mobility in their homes.

With 101 Mobility and the HISA, Veterans can:

  • Replace all bathroom tubs with shower stalls complete with molded or pull-down seats
  • Install non-skid strips or slip-resistant tiles in the shower
  • Install grab bars in the shower stalls and toilet area
  • Install hand-held showerhead
  • Install raised toilet seats
  • Install handrails on both sides of the stairs for better support
  • Replace carpeting and tile flooring with non-slip/skid type flooring
  • Install non-skid rubber strips on the edge of stairs to help prevent falls
  • Convert kitchen cabinets into drawers to hold pots and pans for easier access
  • Replace door knobs with lever handles
  • Install lever-handle faucets in kitchen and bathrooms
  • Consider increasing door opening sizes to as much as 36 to 42 inches
  • Install a permanent or portable wheelchair ramp
