If living at home begins to present physical challenges for you or your family, your health and well-being can suffer. Home adaptations allow you to regain confidence and independence – making a house the perfect home once more. What adaptations are available to you, you might ask? Aging-In-Place expert and custom home builder, Rick Byers, suggests the following renovations to adapt your home for life.
Stairlifts & Platform Lifts
Stairs are a major cause of falls which have a terrible impact on confidence as well as health. Timely fitting of stair lifts or platform lifts can provide an opportunity for you to be mobile and independent for longer. You shouldn't wait until you or a family member can't do the stairs so you are forced to either need more rehabilitation, live somewhere other than your home temporarily, or have to give up your home altogether. Plan ahead!

Your bathroom must be designed to meet your individual needs so that you can continue to live independently and with dignity. Higher toilets, grab bars, easy entry showers – an aging-in-place specialist can transform your bathroom without compromising your style.
Kitchens are the heart of a home and should be an inviting and comfortable space for all. The perfect age-in-place kitchens are designed with mobility in mind; ensuring there is sufficient space for wheelchair use and the height of work surfaces meet all of the family’s needs. Appliances should be accessible and user friendly. We will help you pick out the appropriate appliances for whatever your adaptation needs may be.
Physical challenges to leaving your home can be a catalyst for becoming socially isolated. It is very obviously paramount that you be able to enter and exit your home safely. Many common hazards can be overcome by installing handrails in key areas, widening doorways, graded pathways and/or access ramps suitable for wheelchairs and mobility scooters.
