What Is Aging-in-Place?

At its core, aging-in-place is a fairly simple concept. The goal is to keep your home safe, make things more comfortable, and allow you to feel confident in performing daily tasks and functions.

Though the concept is simple enough, it’s important to understand that aging-in-place modifications may require a lot of changes and alterations to your home — it all depends on your preferences and needs.

Our aging-in-place services in New Hampshire and Massachusetts can include:

  • Updating or altering lighting for better visibility and security
  • Replacing or modifying staircases with more accessible options
  • Adjusting cabinets and/or countertops for simpler access
  • Creating low-maintenance home modifications
  • Expanding hallways and doorways
  • Creating non-slip flooring for kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, and more
  • Increasing security systems
  • Altering and remodeling bedrooms

These are a few of the more common options available, but it all comes down to what options are the best for your situation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Remodeling or downsizing your home are both viable options, depending on your personal preferences, budget, and functional needs.

Downsizing to a smaller home can make maintenance and mobility easier while remodeling your home for aging-in-place modifications can allow you to remain in your home and community for longer.

Aging-in-place modifications can include adding grab bars, non-slip flooring, wider doorways, and lever handles, among other changes that improve accessibility and safety.

Home modifications for aging-in-place can increase the value of your home, especially if the changes are well-designed and aesthetically pleasing.

These modifications can also make your home more appealing to potential buyers since they offer added convenience, accessibility, and safety.

Aging-in-place modifications in a two-story home typically involve ensuring that all of the main living areas — bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room, etc. — are on the first floor so that you don’t have to use stairs frequently.

If you do need to access the second floor, modifications such as installing a stair lift can make it safer and easier to use the stairs. Other modifications may include installing handrails, non-slip surfaces, and more lighting on stairs.

Remember to consult with a professional home remodeling company and your occupational therapist to determine the best modifications for your specific needs and circumstances.
