Universal Design & Aging in Place

Changes to Increase Access & Safety

If you are like the majority of Americans over the age of 45, you want to continue living in a familiar environment throughout your maturing years. Designer Builders can help you achieve this goal. Likewise, if you’re considering having your elderly or aging parents move in with you and need to modify your home so that they can stay with you long into to their years, Designer Builders can help you. If you find yourself or a family member faced with physical challenges and limited mobility, Designer Builders can help you.

To Age-in-Place, a homeowner will most likely need to modify their house as they mature to increase access, maneuverability and safety. These modifications range from the installation of bath and shower grab bars, to adjusting countertop heights, to the creation of multifunctional first floor master suites. Other common modifications include the installation of ramps or even the addition of a private elevator.

According to the AARP, older homeowners overwhelmingly prefer to age-in-place, which means living in your home safely, independently and comfortably, regardless of age or ability level. Designer Builders can provide a solution.
