We have all heard the phrase “A Man’s Home is His Castle” but what about when that home no longer serves the needs of the inhabitants? Many families today are starting to think about the design of their home in light of what the future could bring. The very thought of having to leave their home can be devastating, so why not explore options? While we do our best to stay young and vibrant, getting older is inevitable. Home modifications could be the very remedy for a senior who wishes to live independently and feel safe. Residential retrofits can provide some very positive repercussions. Installing home elevators may be the answer to being able to live comfortably without sacrificing the aesthetics.
If the stairs start to become too difficult to manage at home, there are usually two options that people can consider to solve the problem. The first option is to remain at home (with modifications), and the other is to move to a senior living or assisted living facility. Both are feasible options, but many prefer to remain in their home because it prevents the stress of having to move again, and makes it possible to remain in the place that has so many positive emotional ties. A home is a place of comfort as it is where most people build lasting memories with family and friends, whether it be from holidays parties, or social gatherings with friends.
