Barrier-Free Remodeling Design in Kalamazoo
A significant concern as people grow older is that they may have to leave their home. This would mean leaving behind a comfortable setting, familiar community and many memories. In addition a certain amount of control is lost when one leaves home. This "control" provides the underpinning to our feelings of dignity, quality of life and independence. One's home is a strong element in that sense of security.
Most American seniors desire to stay in their homes for the rest of their lives. In fact an AARP survey found this number to be greater than 80% of seniors. This "stay at home" approach is also known as "Aging in Place"
Aging & Your Home
The aging process is blamed for many problems seniors may encounter with daily activities. However quite often it is the home creates the difficulties. Most residential housing is geared to young healthy adults. Builders/remodelers do not take into account age-related conditions such as reduced mobility or limited range of reach. Hence, homes do not support the physical and sensory changes that older adults encounter as they age. What appear to be insignificant home features can have significant effect for a person with even minor aging issues.
