Remodeling Your Home for Retirement Living

Resistance is futile!

Aging in Place: A bathroom pocket door is easy to open and move throughWhat do we resist most in our society? Number one on most people’s list is aging; we’re reluctant to admit that we’re getting on in years! You can buy lotion, potions and pills that promise to slow the effects of the natural aging processes but time takes its toll and our bodies gradually wear out. What does any of this have to do with Corvallis Custom Kitchens & Baths?

Studies have shown that most accidents involving older adults happen right in their own homes and most often in the bathroom. We are the local bathroom experts and we have researched ways to make bathrooms safer. This research led to further study about preparing entire homes for retirement. The result is a list of home modifications to help cut down on falls and other accidents, allowing older adults to stay in their family home independently and out of an assisted living facility.

Aging in Place: A lever handle is easier to use than a traditional round door handleThe pro-active decision to make your home safer will not only add to your comfort and peace of mind but will also increase the resale value of your house. As Baby Boomers reach retirement the demand for homes already adapted for safety will be enormous. Delaying a move into an Assisted Living facility for even one year can save tens of thousands of dollars, making any safety modification investment a significant bargain in comparison.
