Live in Place Designs is a design-bid-build firm. Our focus on aging in place design for creating accessible spaces and adapting design processes of universal and accessible design to help you live as long as possible in your home.
We don’t just plan for looks. We plan for practical needs, too. We’re just as worried about color schemes and coordinating styles as we are about wheelchair clearance and ADA compliance.
We ensure your house looks good. And that it will serve your needs as you grow older.
We do this by tailoring an Aging in Place Plan™ specifically for your needs and desires. This plan is designed to empower you to stay in your home independently and safely over the long-term.
How We Empower You to Aging in Place
We take the time to understand your medical needs now, as well as your family history. And we help you anticipate possible future needs and remodel your home accordingly. We also provide guidance and customized solutions for any services you may need.
Aging in Place Design
At Live in Place Designs, we help you modernize your home, so you can take advantage of the latest technology to make your life better today. We are redefining what it means to “age in place”, enabling people to plan ahead to live a full life with purpose, meaning, and growth.
We keep it simple and stress-free for you. Your certified aging in place specialist will guide you through the remodeling process — and also provide advice on:
- Accommodating an elderly parents’ needs

In the end, your Aging in Place Plan™ will provide you with peace of mind. And you will feel prepared to seize this next stage of life and live it to the fullest.
Our philosophy is that living in place means empowering you to stay autonomous and actively engaged. It should give you the freedom to make your own choices. And most of all, it should improve your quality of life now.

Modernize Your Home for Living in Place
No two people age exactly alike. And no two people have the exact same goals for their future. That is why we take the time to customize an Aging in Place Plan™ for you. Our proprietary accessibility assessment enables us to remodel or build your home specifically to accommodate you. Your circumstances. Your needs. Your dreams.
What Exactly Does Aging in Place Design Look Like?
Modernizing your home for aging in place shouldn’t mean creating a clinical and cold atmosphere. It means opening up your home to anyone who comes over. And welcoming them with attractive designs that wow. It means new smart technology. So you gain the freedom to live the life you choose now.
For example, maybe you love to cook. You can take advantage of smart kitchen technology to make cooking more enjoyable today. And to allow you to keep cooking as long as possible.
Or perhaps you’ve always had a vision of the home of your dreams. Beautiful trends like curbless showers can open up a handicap bathroom. Modern technology like no-touch faucets can make you feel like your home is finally modern.
Your assessment gives us the opportunity to understand your specific desires. And to match them with aging in place design – whether it’s a new construction, complete renovation, or just remodeling a few rooms. Your Aging in Place Plan™ will empower our design team to create a space that’s what you want today and what you need for the foreseeable future.
Here are several of the modern conveniences and smart technology that you can add to your home to enjoy this next stage.
Kitchen modifications could include:
- Touchless faucets
- Smart appliances
- Larger cabinet pulls
- Pull-out shelves
- Moved sink faucets for easier access
- Front controls for stove or oven
- Multi-level kitchen counter tops with open space under, so the cook can work while seated
- Front controls for stove or oven
- Refrigerators with two doors for easy access to frozen food storage
Master bath modifications could include:

Plan to Ensure You Enjoy the Next Stage at Home
Everyone has minor issues about their home that they wish they could fix. Maybe it’s a lack of closet space. Or an oddly placed wall.
As you enter this next stage, why wait? Live in the home of your dreams now. And prepare your home, so you can stay there for the foreseeable future.
Our custom plan will consider health and wellness factors. And then we’ll define a plan that provides solutions for immediate concerns and possible long-term needs.
Technology and Lighting Are Key
Is it easy to see in your home during all times of the day? What about your front and back doorways? These issues can lead to serious trip hazards.
Your Aging in Place Plan™ will look at every area of your home — from entryways and hallways to closets and staircases. By improving your lighting, you will have a more pleasant experience living in your home. And you’ll also be preparing for your safety in the future.
A few examples of light design ideas are reducing glare and shadows through indirect lighting, exterior motion-activated lights, and changes to light switch accessibility.
Technology is also key. With smart home tech, you don’t even have to reach for a switch to turn something on. You can control everything from your lighting to your TV with a voice command. You may be surprised by how easy it is to master and how much it improves your daily routine.
