Live in Place Plan / AGING IN PLACE design

As people age, they often want to continue living independently for as long as possible. The difficulty is that with getting older many find themselves coping with chronic conditions, or have an ADA disability. That’s where Live in Place Designs can help to redefine home living by creating an aging in place design to make it possible for older adults and those with disabilities to continue living independently and safely in their own home.

That means creating accessible spaces which allow each and every one of our customers to stay in their current home. We not only want people to live safely and comfortably, but also experience purpose, meaning, and growth.

It’s all about empowering you to remain engaged and autonomous. Giving you access to resources to continue exploring and contributing.

So you are free to make your own choices with independence. To have the highest possible quality of life.

Part 1 / Home Modification Designed for Safety & Accessibility

When we design and modify existing homes or undertake new construction, we take into consideration an individual’s unique circumstances and functional abilities. 

We do this by using our proprietary accessibility assessment.

It enables us to make recommendations for home modifications that enable safe and comfortable living for you.

What Does Aging in Place Design Look Like?

At Live in Place, our design concept incorporates safety features and fixtures to make your home as comfortable and accessible as possible.

An aging in place design checklist can include a variety of elements. Two of the most common examples are:

  • Ramps or a no-step entry through the front door for wheelchair access or increased convenience
  • Handrails and grab bars throughout the house, particularly in tubs and hallways.

Additionally, we may suggest interior design solutions such as altering the placement of light switches, adding new faucets that are easier to turn, and installing wider doors.

We understand that each of our customers has unique needs. That is why our plans can be customized to fit your specific circumstances.

Maybe you need something simple like adding new doorknobs or lowering cabinets and drawers. Or perhaps you need a complete overhaul.

Whatever your situation, our design team will work to ensure you will be comfortable in your home. Not just today, but for the foreseeable future.

Kitchen modifications could include:

  • Larger cabinet pulls
  • Pull-out shelves
  • Lower counters for wheelchair access
  • Moved sink faucets for easier access
  • Front controls for stove or oven

Master bath modifications could include:

  • Grab bars in bathtubs
  • Curbless shower for wheelchair access
  • Temperature-balanced valves
  • Installation of pocket doors
  • Taller toilets

Part 2 / Planning for Your Quality of Life at Home

Your comfort at home matters. We help you to feel comfortable by first identifying the wellness factors that affect your health. This enables us to support you in coordinating the personal care and community resources you need.

Then, together, we outline and create a customized plan with you. This provides you with a more complete solution for your immediate and long-term needs at home.

What are some of the biggest accessibility issues in homes?

The Importance of Lighting and Technology

One of the biggest issues in the homes of seniors is lack of proper lighting. Dark hallways, poor outside lighting, and an overall lack of natural light can create trip hazards throughout the home. Additionally, dim lighting in closets, around the tub area, and by the stairway can also be dangerous.

Lighting design solutions can include:

  • Installing indirect lighting to reduce glares and shadows
  • Adding motion-activated lights outside
  • Ensuring all light switches are easy to find and reach, even in a wheelchair

Another primary area to focus on is technology. Today’s smart technology makes tasks like turning on lights and adjusting the thermostat easier than ever.

While there can often be a learning curve for seniors, new technology can help people of all ages live comfortably in their home. With just a few clicks on their phone or by saying a few words, homeowners can control many aspects of their house without having to move around.

Part 3 / Hand-to-Hand Approach / Customized Plan

Our approach ensures a completely individualized plan that you help create with a trusted and reliable personal connection. We act as your advocate, but you determine what programs and health care services best meet your needs.

This means that you make the ultimate decisions, but you don’t have to handle all the details yourself. We will be with you every step of the way to tailor a Live in Place Plan™ just for you.
