What Are the Benefits of Aging-in-Place?

While a major home remodel job can be expensive, so is a unit in an assisted living facility. Living in a Memphis-area facility is a continuous, significant cost, while an aging-in-place remodel allows you to remain in the comfort of your home as you age without the added cost of paying for the services that come with an assisted living facility.

Homes also hold a lot of sentimental value. Many people prefer to remain in the comfort of their own home as they age, and aging-in-place remodeling allows them to do so in a safe and comforting way. We understand that your house is home to countless memories and meanings, so we do our best to preserve the spirit of your home while creating a physically safe and accommodating space.

How Do I Age-in-Place in my Memphis Home?

There are a number of ways to update your home in order to make it senior-friendly. Your plan will ultimately rely on your home’s current design, as well as your individual desires. We adhere to universal home design guidelines to create a secure space for you. Here are some common updates we make for aging-in-place remodels:

Aging-in-Place Bathroom Remodeling

Bathrooms can present significant dangers as we age. Slippery surfaces pose a serious falling risk which is a great concern for seniors. We always recommend having a full bathroom built on the first floor if one does not already exist, so that you don’t need to climb stairs to get to the bathroom. We start by updating the shower so that it is easy to get in and out of, and so that you may sit down while showering. A handheld showerhead is a must for ease of use. Grab bars also provide extra stability and reassurance when moving in the shower.

The rest of the bathroom entails a variety of changes. Taller toilets make sitting and standing up easier. Vanity-free sinks allow a wheelchair to fit under the sink. We can create separate storage space that is still easily accessed from the sink. We will also upgrade your lighting if needed.

Aging-in-Place Kitchen & Living Space

We start by assessing the space and ease of movement in your living spaces. Wider doorways, lower countertops, and increased lighting all make day-to-day activities easier. Lever doorknobs are easier to grab than round knobs. We recommend creating 42-48 inch spaces between counters to permit a wheelchair to easily pass through. We will update any appliances that are tricky to operate. We often replace cabinets with easy-to-open drawers or pullout shelves. We can install a stability bar wherever it is needed.
