Stay In Your Home
Create Spaces That Work For You
Focus on Safety
Maintain Your Independence
Many people want to stay in their own homes as long as possible. However, houses are often not equipped for the physical challenges older adults may encounter as they age.
We can help design and execute a plan that will make your home more comfortable and easier to live in.
Personalized Plans - It is important to have a plan in place to maintain your quality of life and independence. We will listen to you to understand your needs and help put your plan in place.
Start Early - Planning to stay in your home is not just for seniors. Too often people wait until a medical situation requires modifications. Starting early gives you the time to plan the adaptations that will allow you to stay in your home as long as possible.
Evaluate Your Home - We will provide a customized livability assessment to identify and recommend changes to make your house better suited for your long term needs.
Decluttering & Organizing - We will help you sort through your things and determine what stays and what goes. We can organize and label cabinets and drawers so that essentials are easily identifiable and accessible.
Rearrange - We will create furniture layouts using your furniture to create safe pathways and easy access to items most often used.
Shop For New Necessities - We can shop for new furniture or equipment you may need such as a suitable bed, shower bench, or non-slip mats.
Repairs - We will identify home repairs and coordinate any appropriate services if needed.
Home Modifications - Recommended modifications may be as simple as replacing doorknobs with lever handles and adding task lighting but they can also include more complicated alterations such as:
Installing grab bars in bathrooms
Adding pull out drawers in lower kitchen cabinets
Replacing a traditional bathtub with a walk-in tub
Creating a no-step entry into the home
Installing an electric stair lift
Moving the master bedroom to the first floor
Widening doors and hallways
Installing a home monitoring system
Creating a space for a live-in caregiver
Coordinate & Supervise Contractors - We will work alongside professional contractors that make any agreed upon modifications.
Support Services - We can provide contacts for resources that offer services such as meal delivery, transportation to appointments, in-home care, cleaning, property maintenance, and more.
