Aging in Place is the act of living safely and comfortably in one’s own home regardless of age or physical ability. According to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), over 90% of seniors want to remain in their homes as they age.
As the baby boomer generation matures, aging-in-place remodeling is becoming a popular and viable alternative to moving to an assisted living community or skilled nursing facility.
Some of the benefits to aging in place include:
Maintaining a sense of independence in a comfortable environment
Feeling the security of familiar surroundings
Enjoying a home that has been tailored to your specific needs
LCM Constructions’ aging in place modifications range from the simple, like switching door hardware from knob to lever style, to the elaborate, such as master bath or kitchen remodels to accommodate changing physical abilities. We design all modifications to allow you to feel more mobile and unencumbered.
Basic aging in place modifications can include:
Installing grab bars at bath areas
Replacing toggle-style electrical switches with rocker-style switches
Installing roll-out drawers at kitchen base cabinets for easier access
