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.
Our specialists possess expert knowledge of 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, ADA Accessible Guidelines (where necessary), occupational therapists, and social workers, etc. as needed.
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 additional resources to ensure we are providing you with solutions that maximize your overall health and well-being.
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
A HOME EVALUATION ALLOWS YOU TO SET YOUR 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.
