If you’re seeking information to assist with funding for ramps, the Province of Alberta has a Grant Program which may be applicable to some situations. There are eligibility requirements and limits each benefit year.
The program is called the Residential Access Modification Program (RAMP) and we’ve included the guidelines and criteria document supplied by the Alberta Government here for download. For even more information, you can check out our funding page.
Entranceway Options – Pros and Cons of Each
There are many options to consider for entry and exit points from homes and businesses, garages, stairways, porches, decks and more.
RampsWheelchairs or mobility scooters
- • No mechanical parts (no failures)
- • No electrical parts (no failures)
- • QRamps have high coefficient of friction meaning good slip resistance is built in
- • There are several types of ramps available for different solutions (threshold, modular and portable for when you’re travelling)
- • Length is sometimes insurmountable at a 1:12 ratio over two risers (that would be 15″)
- • The distance and cost of ramps often make a VPL a better choice
- • Ramps rising over 3-4 steps may be difficult for self-propelled wheelchair users because of angle of incline
- • Ramps take up the greatest amount of space of all the solutions
Wheelchair LiftsVertical Platform Lift
- • Can lift users up to 14 feet in height
- • Minimal space footprint in comparison to ramp solutions
- • Easy to use
- • Have a capacity up to 750lbs (meaning user, plus caregiver, load of groceries, etc. can all go in one trip)
- • The shortest lift available is 28″
- • VPL is the most expensive of all the solutions
- • It reaches higher heights therefore requires more safety devices
- • Usually requires some type of renovations such as a platform build to ensure it is flush with the entry area
Stairlifts in GaragesIf able to do self-transfers
- • Takes less room than a VPL if you’re able to manage your own transfers
- • Potential tripping hazard
- • Not as easy to use compared to VPL
- • May require zero intrusion style
- • May need to have stairs in garage rebuilt to accomodate stairlift
Outdoor StairliftWhen the other options won't work
- • When other choices won’t work due to space limitations this solution will work
- • It’s outdoors, so it will require clearing off and covering when not in use
- • It can become unplugged
- • It’s about 2x the price of an indoor stairlift
