Adaptive Home Modifications : Our house, our safe place

For many people, getting older comes with its own set of challenges, particularly when it comes to mobility. As much as they would like to remain in the home they love, family members often can’t take care of their mobility needs around the house.

 

However, there is a way for you or your loved one to stay home and to promote more safety throughout the house. We believe aging in place should be possible for all of our customers. That’s why we offer a range of remodelling services to help people achieve that goal.

Our professionals find solutions to common issues, such as getting in and out of the tub, tackling stairs, and doing everyday tasks like laundry. With a range of services that includes installing walk-in showers, installing ramps, and moving washers and dryers to the main floor, we don’t just make comfortably living in your home possible, we make it safe and enjoyable.

Our goal is to help you make your home as safe and worry-free as possible. The key factors for a successful home remodelling are:

  • Accessibility:Improving accessibility means making doorways wider, clearing spaces to make sure a wheelchair can pass through, lowering countertop heights for sinks and kitchen cabinets, installing grab bars, and placing light switches and electrical outlets at heights that can be reached easily. The work must conform to state and local building codes.
  • Adaptability:Adaptability features are changes that can be made quickly to accommodate the needs of seniors or disabled individuals without having to completely redesign the home or use different materials for essential fixtures. Examples include installing grab bars in bathroom walls and movable cabinets under the sink so that someone in a wheelchair can use the space.
  • Universal Design:Universal design features are usually built into a home when the first blueprints or architectural plans are drawn. These features include appliances, fixtures, and floor plans that are easy for all people to use, flexible enough so that they can be adapted for special needs, sturdy and reliable, and functional with a minimum of effort and understanding of the mechanisms involved.
  • Visibility:Visibility features include home modifications for seniors who may want to entertain disabled guests or who wish to plan ahead for the day when they may require some extra help in getting around their own homes. For example, installing a ramp to the front door of a house and remodelling the hallways and rooms to allow wheelchair access would make a home easier to visit for disabled family members or friends. Such changes may also give seniors a head start on home modifications they may need later in their lives.
