Adapting Your Home with Universal Design & Home Improvements for those Aging Seniors at Home
|June 20, 2011 - Author: John P. Mitrano|
You love your home, but it may be getting more difficult to live there, either because of injury, chronic condition, or just for being an aging senior citizen. Or as they say, getting old is not for sissies. Easy access, convenience and safety become a priority. In New Jersey, 13% of us are over 65 (26% of our households) more than the national average (uscensus2010data.com).
Instead of contemplating a retirement village, staying close to families, friends and established community relationships could be an option. Universal designed home modification and a maintenance contract could enable older adults to remain in their homes a few more years –or at least until the NJ housing market improves.
Curb Appeal Designs, an established reliable contractor builds ramps, installs handrails or other barrier free, universal design remodeling. Your home can be more ergonomic and work-efficient, when adapted to suit your specific needs. A stair-free entrance benefitting a grandparent would be appreciated by a new mom with a stroller as well.
A home maintenance contract can help older adults without family nearby. Seasonal Home Care’s Bronze, Silver or Gold options guarantees there will not be an untrustworthy incompetent or unsanctioned contractor coming in to take advantage, overcharge or worse. Their stringent criteria ensures only the best, certified experts will perform the work.
“The four years mom lived with us were the most precious. My daughter had the opportunity to know her grandmother during her most formative years and I was able to spend more time with my family, rather than running to mom’s every time a pipe broke or a medical emergency ensued. Now we have the added value of a universal designed bathroom to add to our home’s features when we are ready to sell.” Patricia Fierst, Homeowner in West Orange, NJ.
Homeowners find the universal design concept appealing as well. Existing homes are easily retrofitted with accessible shelving, closets and easy-to-grasp fixtures increasing usability for all ages, heights and abilities. Curb Appeal Designs can help provide the necessary modifications to ensure your home will be your sanctuary from the world.
