Design Is So Important / to be able to live independentlY

Because it’s about safety, care, and overall wellness.

Maybe you know exactly what you’re looking for in a Living in Place project. Or you are hoping for some guidance. Live in Place Designs is your total solution. Design a lifestyle at home that works for you.

To live independently, it requires forethought for the suitability of the home. You should also consider your access to services as family circumstances, health, financial, and household needs evolve.

Don’t wait for a crisis to make plans for the future

If you have experienced a life-changing event, are aware of changes occurring, or simply foresee issues in the near future, it’s time to start a conversation with partners, family, and loved ones.

To live independently, you should discuss the option of home modifications or renovations for older adults.

You may realize facility care is…

  • A more expensive option,
  • Lacking the privacy you want,
  • Possibly not even necessary,
  • Unable to give you the quality of life you desire for yourself or your loved ones,
  • And something that doesn’t feel like the right fit for you.

Here are some questions to ask yourself:

  • What is important to you that makes you want to stay at home?
  • Will you be able to or even want to manage the home you live in now?
  • Is your home safe right now?
  • Have you researched modification options to your home for comfort and safety?
  • Have you considered technology options?
  • What services are readily accessible to live in place?
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Take the time to evaluate your reasons to stay in your home

It can help determine your next steps.

Assess where you are now – and where you want to be as your situation evolves.

Home Modifications / to Live Independently


To live independently

For older adults to live independently, home modifications are necessary to ensure their safety. This can include modifications to their bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, and other living spaces.

Bathrooms - Home Re/novations for the Elderly


Renovations to bathrooms are particularly important. These can include grab bars, lever handles for sinks, and more. The end result is a safer, easier to use bathroom that also looks updated.

Aging in place home modifications - Living room pull-out drawers

Other home modifications

Other home modifications for the elderly could include non-slip floor surfaces, accessible light switches, stairless entrance for the front door, and lever-handle door knobs, just to name a few.
