According to an ASID survey 82% of Americans want to stay in their home as they age, even if they should require assistance or care.
Will your home accommodate you as your needs change? As we age our bodies change. We have hearing loss, changes in vision, loss of strength and dexterity, arthritis. Sometimes we have loss of mobility. There are things that we can do to change our homes, or plan new homes that allow us to live independent healthy lives as we get older.
Some changes include grab rails, special clearances, surfaces that allow us to move easier. Well placed lighting and sound systems.
Kitchens and bathrooms that have special heights and features can make things that have not been comfortable, suddenly much easier to do.
Simple adjustments, like non glare glass, remote controls or easy to grasp controls. Even colors that let you know where surfaces start and stop can make major quality of life improvements.
There are many ways to make life easier, whether you are planning for an elderly relative to live with you in your home or planning to stay in your own home and or allow for an extra living space for a care taker. We can work with you to make life easier and more beautiful at the same time.
