Home Sweet Home
Everyone loves their own home, right? Right. So, even though there are all these senior communities popping up all over the place, there are still quite a lot of people who would prefer to remain in their own home. There is a whole different segment that either cannot afford these communities or would prefer to move in with their children, or their children would prefer them to move in with them. The point being, for whatever the reason there is a fairly large segment of the older population that is doing what is called “aging in place”. And that quite simply means that they are growing older in their own (or their children’s) home.
So, “aging in place” is great, all your stuff is already there, you know where everything is, you know who your neighbors are, or in the case of moving into your children’s home, you’ve got your best stuff, you get to see your kids all the time, you get to meet your kids friends and neighbors… It’s all going along fine, until you can’t quite get out of the tub, or up from the toilet, or turn faucet or door handles and you keep tripping over that slight step up between the enclosed porch and the family room, etc.
These are a few of the things that you will probably run into staying in your own home while you age, but not to worry, there are solutions to all of these and any other issues you encounter like lighting and electrical cords and items out of reach. Andy OnCall can make any and all aging in place modifications that you may need now or in the future. If you would prefer to be proactive and address them all now that’s fine. Or if you would prefer to tackle them as they arise that’s fine as well. Whatever you are comfortable with Andy onCall is happy to work with you to modify your home so you can live comfortably and safely.
