Recovering from Surgery?

Find a Doctor

If you’re recovering from surgery or a catastrophic injury, you may be faced with a number of stressful challenges. When it comes to your home, you may be required to modify your home for easier access. For instance, if you are now in a wheelchair, things that used to be in reach may not be any longer. Whether your injury is temporary, long term, permanent, you may require modifications of your home. As part of this process, you may need to move large items around in your house, remove others, and move new ones into your home. You don’t have to do this yourself. Most movers offer the following services:

  • When a home is modified to accommodate wheelchair access, the kitchen countertops may have to be lowered, the bathroom may have to be completely remodeled, to so much more. As a result, a substantial amount of material may have to be removed from the premises. Moving companies work with a number of recycling centers, donation centers, thrift stores, and others to repurpose materials as much as possible. They can haul your refuse to the junkyard, or take it to places that they know can make use of your unwanted items.
  • If the outside of your home needs modifications, movers can haul away old structures such as porches, railings, concrete footings, and so much more. An overhaul of this magnitude may be necessary if a wheelchair ramp needs to be installed. A moving company can haul away whatever you do not want or need anymore. Most movers even have a variable pricing tier, depending on what you need to be taken.
  • When a catastrophic illness strikes, it’s not uncommon for the person afflicted to have to rearrange their home living arrangement. For instance, if you or your loved one was in the hospital for a period of time, a condition of release might be that a hospital bed be installed in the living room. This could be because going up and down the stairs to a second floor bedroom is not possible at this time. A moving company can pick up the hospital bed and other supplies from the medical supply store and bring them to your home. They can also move other large or heavy objects from one room to another, if you need to further rearrange the living space. If you need furniture removed from the home, they can move that for you, too.

If you or a loved one is recovering from a serious injury, illness, or surgery, you may not be able to make the necessary changes at home by yourself. One of the top moving companies Washington, DC offers can understand the challenges involved when faced with a life changing medical condition.
