Accessible & Adaptable Retirement Apartments

Minto Gardens has a variety of accessible and adaptable apartments onsite. Their accessible apartments are designed with extra support to help you live independently. Their adaptable apartments can be configured with extra support should you need it in the future. Lower bench heights, bathroom grab rails and wheelchair spaces are just some of the features designed to make living in your own apartment that much easier.

Minto Gardens offer two apartment types. Accessible or Adaptable Retirement Living. Accessible; where you need accessibility right now, and Adaptable; where you may need it later in life.

1. Adaptable

The apartment can be configured with extra support should you need it in the future. For example, if you need grab rails in the future, it is a simple installation, because the wall structure is designed to retrofit them. The same applies for the shower chair if you wish to have it attached to the wall.

This also ensures it is a cost-saving exercise. Why? Because the tiles and walls need to be removed to support the weight-bearing that grab rails are required to offer.

Because Minto Gardens thought about this at the time of construction, there are the right structural supports behind the bathroom tiles to install grab rails, and can then be fitted simply and inexpensively.

2. Accessible

These apartments are designed with extra support to help you live independently.

So let’s look at the two options room by room for this Accessible Adaptable Retirement Living at Minto Gardens.
