Our team of experts in design, architecture, construction, occupational therapy and physical therapy qualifies us to assess our client’s personal and individual needs. We create a comprehensive Aging in Place Assessment Plan that enables our clients to live comfortably and safely in their homes.
The cost of moving from your home to assisted living can average $50,000 to over $100,000 per year. Plus you may need to downsize by discarding furnishings and memorabilia that you treasure. Based upon your Aging in Place Assessment Plan you may find that it is more cost effective to remain in your own home that has been redesigned to meet your personal desires and requirements.
PEACE OF MIND
Many family members live a far distance from your home. They express concern about your lifestyle and safety. By assessing your personal needs and creating an Aging in Place environment, it provides for a dignified, self-sufficient and independent lifestyle for you.
The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention defines Aging in Place as “the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently and comfortably regardless of age, income or ability level.”
It is far healthier to live in a safe comfortable home than in an assisted living community that is packed with people of different physical abilities. Those living conditions may not be the healthiest environment or provide the individual attention that you need or desire.
DEFINITION: as defined by MEDICARE
Aging in Place refers to a decision individuals make to remain in their homes or their communities as they grow older, instead of opting for relocation to long term care facilities such as assisted living and nursing homes. The decision to remain independent and at home will likely involve redesigning and remodeling a home enabling seniors to live at home safely and independently.
