Who Does This Benefit?

 

Elderly - "Aging in Place" is another term you may be familiar with. Our experts will help adapt the living space of your elderly loved one so that they can more easily function in their home. Some examples of this include surfaces that are stable and slip resistant, walk-in tubs, emergency alert systems, activity sensors, and components that do not require tight grasping.

Physical Disability - Multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy are just a couple of the conditions that can leave an individual wheelchair bound. We go in and make it so that being in wheelchair does not keep anyone from being able to perform everyday functions in the home. A few examples are lower counter tops, wider hallways, roll in showers, automatic doors, smart home technology, and smooth ground level entrances.
