Our Process / Your Customized Plan from CARE TO HOME REMODELING

Changing Needs

Compared to the prices charged for facility care, home remodeling or initiating a design-bid-build for living in place is by far the most cost-effective and desired solution.

The cost of facility care can be difficult for many to afford, even those with a strong financial plan. Often facility care may not even be needed or appropriate.

Facility care is also definitely not an eventuality. However, if needed, Live In Place Designs can help you transition seamlessly to assisted living, nursing care, or memory care.
