Flexibility to move about your kitchen and bathrooms with age, disability or mobility issues.
With an expanding need for Aging In Place (AIP) solutions designed specifically for the bath and kitchen areas, you can personalize your bathroom or kitchen with accessories that suit your unique style. Many homeowners are converting their bathtubs to showers for convenience and ease of use. We offer many alternatives, like standard or low-barrier thresholds and ramps or no thresholds. This allows for peace of mind, comfort, and safety, all while retaining your independence that features the look of luxury all for a lot less than you might think.
Aging In Place (AIP) is a term used for those who continuously choose to grow old at home rather than moving to a senior living community. As Americans approach retirement, their fears for the future become more real. Will I be able to stay at home or must I move into a nursing home? Who will care for me? How ill I pay for this?
Growing old, or becoming disabled, does not mean having to leave the home you love because of accessibility issues. You deserve to live a healthy, interdependent lifestyle in the comfort of your own home.
According to AARP, nine out of ten Americans hope to live out their days in their own homes. If you or a family member are considering this option you should survey your home to determine if it is accessible and liveable for any age or level of mobility. We can help you determine what updates you will need to allow for Aging in Place!
