Recommendations for AIP Remodeling

There are a number of things to consider when remodeling your home for senior living. You may wish to consult a professional early in your evaluation process. Not all modifications are essential to your home; instead we suggest you focus on those items that enhance your specific needs. Some items like better lighting not only make your home more livable but also add to the resale value of your property.

General Enhancements

  • Adapt the lower floor of the home for single level living
  • Increase general and specific task lighting
  • Create easy garage or parking access
  • There should be at least one entry with no steps
  • Install lever door handles instead of knobs
  • Adjustable controls on light switches are very useful
  • Install luminous switches in bedrooms, baths and hallways
  • Strobe light or vibrating smoke and burglar alarms for hearing impared
  • Contrasting colors between floor and walls add to safety
  • Slip resistant flooring is much safer
  • Enhanced high and low frequency tones for doorbells and telephones


  • Lever faucets and faucet mixers with anti-scald valves
  • Temperature controlled shower and tub fixtures
  • Stall shower with a low threshold, shower seat, and hand-held shower head
  • Grab bars at back and sides of shower, tub and toilet
  • Turn around and transfer space for walker or wheelchair
  • Telephone jack for emergency calls
  • Installation of medical response device


  • Easy to grasp cabinet knobs or pulls
  • Task lighting under counters
  • Adjustable upper shelves and pull out lower shelves
  • Variety in kitchen counter height – some as low as table height (30 inches)
  • Gas sensor near gas cooking, water heater and gas furnace
  • Color or pattern borders at counter edges for visual contrast
