What is Aging in Place?

Frequently, when adults get older, they move to an assisted living facility or nursing home, but this isn’t right for everyone. If you want to stay in your home, you’re choosing to age in place. In order to do this safely, you may need to incorporate changes around the house that cater to your limitations.

Aging in place is also referred to as ADA-compliant design because it follows the guidelines set by the Americans with Disabilities Act. A home remodel aimed at aging in place makes your living space:

  • More functional for everyone, regardless of their age or mobility level
  • Adaptable for future use as you continue to age
  • Comfortable and convenient, thus improving your quality of life

Design for Aging in Place

It’s important to understand that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to aging in place. The design should be unique to your current situation while considering your potential future needs as well. You know it’s time to make modifications to your home if:

  • A chronic health condition is getting worse
  • Your mobility is becoming more limited as you age
  • A traumatic injury has created an immediate life change
  • A parent, in-law, or other older adult is planning to move in with you
  • There’s an underlying desire to modernize the home for aesthetic reasons

Aging in Place Remodeling Services

We begin your remodel with a design consultation. The goal is to assess your needs and recommend a list of modifications to meet them. An in-home assessment is the best way for us to understand your current situation, any unmet needs, and how we can plan for the future. Some of the features often incorporated into aging-in-place designs include:

  • Open floor plans
  • No-step entries
  • Ramps, elevators, and stairlifts
  • Wider doorways with lever doorknobs
  • Handrails and grab bars
  • Slip-resistant tubs and bathroom flooring
  • Walk-in bathtubs, curbless showers, and built-in shower seats
  • Lower countertops
  • Shallow kitchen sink
  • Ground-floor master suite
