Many of us desire to stay in our homes as long as possible. It’s our haven that connects us to many years of enjoyment and memories. Our homes provide us with comfort and familiarity. Doing “life” as we age in our homes, however, can also be challenging at times. Frequent falls or difficulty with common activities could identify the need for home modifications.
A skilled therapist can do a thorough assessment of your’s or your loved one’s home setting and physical layout. They will identify any safety risks that can be corrected and make recommendations for creating a more accessible or more convenient setup for optimal functionality.
Our Aging Well HomeAssessment tool provides a working document that can be used to make changes to the home/living space as an individual’s needs change. Assessment areas include:
- Exterior entrances and seating/gathering areas
- Interior doors, stairs, windows, and hallways
- Bathroom and Kitchen areas
- Living/Dining areas and Bedrooms
- Basement/Laundry areas
- Utilities and alarms
Our qualified staff will make a home visit to evaluate and provide appropriate modification solutions, proper assistive device products, and other recommendations. We will help locate appropriate contractors sensitive to the needs of older adults and even assist in coordinating the work if requested.
Let the Inspire Care team of physical/occupational therapists and landscape/site design professionals evaluate your home and property, providing you with no cost, low costs, and cost-effective solutions.
