The hallways and the doors need to be widened for the seniors, disabled and handicap for free movement in and out of the house. Narrow doors and hallways are strenuous for movement especially when one is using a wheelchair or walking canes. Sufficient space is needed to minimize falls and injuries. One of the ways of reducing strain and risks of injuries is by widening the doors and the hallways. As the hallway is widened, the anti-slippery floor is also installed to reduce the risks of falling.

Wheelchair users can easily navigate within their homes if the doors and the hallways are wide enough to accommodate the wheelchair. This increases their independence because they can go out and, in the house, whenever they need without asking for help. Going out to busk under the sun is a healthy activity for the elderly and people living with disabilities. The widening of the doors and hallways will need an expert to handle the project.
