“In-place retirement” has become more popular in recent years, with many people choosing to stay home as long as possible.
To achieve this goal, owners may need to consider accommodation to ensure their housing accessibility. Stair handrails or stair elevators can be added to provide stability in the case of reduced mobility. Flooring materials can be replaced, travel hazard eliminated and adequate lighting included in frequent travel paths.
The key to making aging a reality
As you try to make sure your home provides reasonable accommodation for the future, consider the following:
1.Entrance and exit to the home – is the staircase used to enter the home now? Can I add ramps or elevators?
2.Stairs – are the necessary rooms located up and down stairs? How will you continue to use all floors of your home? Consider adding a residential elevators, wheelchair elevators or stair elevators for passengers to move from floor to floor.
3.Floor – consider items that may be at risk of tripping. Assess floor materials and remove any carpets that may cause obstacles to the main passage through the home.
4.Lighting – make sure all areas with heavy traffic are properly lit.
5.Additional remodeling – are there any projects that require remodeling for home access? Think about your daily routine and consider things such as easy access to kitchen cabinets, using the bathroom, taking a bath or shower, etc.
Plan ahead and make sure you have easy access to all the necessary areas of your home so that proper aging can become a reality.
