Increasingly, people are looking to age in place. If you have lived in the same house for decades, it is not easy to break those ties and move to a retirement home.
But if you are looking to age in place, it is quite likely that you will need to make changes to your house and your lifestyle. The same dwelling that has served you so well for years, might need minor (or major) modifications to make it ready for your golden years.
In this section, we cover all the home modifications that you need to make to age in place. Our detailed guides will help you select the big and small changes needed to make things more comfortable for a happy and healthy retirement.
Your bathroom is one of the first places that need to be modified to enable you to safely age in place. From anti-slip mats and grab poles to adaptive showerheads and walk-in tubs, it can cost thousands of dollars. We help you make the right choices so that your bathroom is safer and more usable as you age.
As you age, your ability to sit on a toilet seat decreases. Incontinence is also something that many seniors deal with. The right adaptations and modifications to your toilet will help you do your business with comfort and dignity.
Your ability to cook for yourself will keep you independent and self-reliant for a long time. Kitchen modifications will help you to use your kitchen to the fullest, even when you are not in your prime health.
A good night’s sleep is essential to feel fresh and active the next day. As you age, some modifications to your bedroom will help make it more comfortable and safe for you. In our detailed guides, we help you with different options when making your bedroom ready for you to age in place.
