There's No Place Like Home

We Modify Homes to Promote Independence for Seniors Choosing to Age in Place and Individuals with Physical Challenges.

Who We Are and What We Do

Aging in Place is a choice many people are making to remain in their homes, living independently for as long as they’re able. Often the home requires modifications to ensure ease of use and safety.

Aging in Place Architecture’s goal is to provide a safe and comfortable environment for individuals needing home modifications. We create accessible design that is specific to each and every client’s own specifications/needs.  This can include the needs associated with a health or medical related condition that requires particular spatial and/or visual accommodation or to those who wish to age in place and need their existing homes or future homes changed to accommodate the needs associated with aging.

Modifications may include:

  • Bathroom renovations to improve mobility, ease of use, and safety (grab bars, low threshold showers, seated showers, special toilets with washlets, etc)
  • Outdoor Ramps for wheelchair and walker access
  • Doorways widened to accommodate walkers and wheelchairs
  • Accessible kitchens
  • Stair lifts
  • Create a roll in shower
  • Handicap grab handles at bedside and in the bathroom
  • A variety of devices to help with everyday activities
  • Solutions personalized for specific needs

Stay in Your Home

The homes of many seniors and disabled individuals lack the necessary structural features and support systems that can make independent living a viable and safe option. A design expert can update existing homes with simple changes that add safety for seniors or those with physical challenges, and creates an environment that promotes independent living.

This is through features that are intended to enhance safety and inclusiveness for persons of all ages and abilities, based on recommendations of the US Dept. of Housing and Urban Development, as well as the ADA Accessible Guidelines (where necessary), and recommendations of occupational therapists, and social workers, etc. as needed.

A Home Evaluation Lets You Set Priorities

Our design expert, who specializes in Aging In Place design needs, evaluates your home for accessibility and safety. They will make recommendations to resolve physical obstacles and create a safer living environment. These recommendations can be implemented directly by the design expert or the Architect can work with the Homeowners’ own General Contractor and subcontractors to ensure that the project is done to specifications. These alterations will be made as unobtrusively as possible so that they do not decrease the real estate value, but will hopefully increase it.

At the conclusion of the home inspection and interview(s), a detailed client-specific report will be produced that will detail our recommendation for the home modifications, and other considerations for improving one’s safety and promote independent living. This report will also include a Work Proposal, which will describe in detail the work to be performed, estimated costs, project notes, etc. The client at the time can then hire the firm to perform the work as proposed. Our firm will be then sub-contract out different elements of the Work Proposal as needed to the appropriate specialists, such as plumbers, electricians, etc. to perform the work as specified and ensure it’s done according to plans, within the required timeframe.

Medical Conditions Will Require Enhancements to the Home

Stroke, surgery, illness or an accident may require modifications to your home. Temporary or permanent disabilities benefit from accessibility modifications such as chair lifts, counter heights, doorway width adjustments, and outdoor ramps. Aging in Place Architecture will advise and resolve the changes you may want or need done in your home.

For clients currently under medical care, we will work closely with healthcare providers to incorporate their requirements into the home modifications, as well as consult with where necessary, an occupational therapist, social worker, etc.
