Aging in place means you have the choice to: Remain in your home – Safely, Independently, Comfortably … regardless of your age or physical ability.
The idea that aging in place and universal design tries to convey is that by planning to stay in your home, and making changes that will help ensure your home continues to meet your needs over the years, are becoming more important in the design and remodeling world. Due to the fact that people don’t want to move just because they’re a little older; they wan to stay in the home of their choice. That’s where making the choice to have your home remodeled and updated to meet your immediate and future needs comes into play.
Today, Seniors overwhelmingly would rather stay in their home rather than leave to go into a retirement facility. They are much more comfortable with the idea of living where they are familiar. A neighborhood that is filled with the memories of their home! Adaptive housing techniques can transform your home, lessening the dangers of growing old and allowing you to enjoy your home for life!
