Aging Gracefully in Your Own Home

Remodeling Update: Aging Gracefully 


You may be ready to spend your golden years in your current home, but is your current home ready for you to age?

Aging in place is the ability to live in your home safely, independently and comfortably, regardless of age or ability level, for as long as possible. Staying in your current house as you age often requires some remodeling.  Aging in place allows you the pleasure of living in a familiar environment throughout your maturing years, and the ability to enjoy the familiar daily rituals and the special events that enrich all our lives. It means the reassurance of being able to call a house a “home” for a lifetime.

Baby Boomers are getting more realistic about anticipating their own aging-in-place needs and adopting those changes sooner rather than later.

Modifications can range from simple to incredibly expensive. From installing grab bars for toilets and tubs to increasing the width of doorways and hallways to be wheelchair accessible, there are many modifications that can be made to allow you to remain in your home.

Resources are available to help you decide which type of remodeling enhancements should be done. As a CAPS(Certified Aging in Place Specialist) we can provide you with a home assessment and assist you in determining YOUR needs.
