Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries of older Americans. Seniors who are over 65 are 25% more likely to be injured in a fall. These injuries are among the 20 most expensive medical conditions with the average hospital bill coming in over $300,000. The cost of treating falls increases with age.
Ninety percent of people over age 65 want to live in their homes for as long as possible. Your home offers comfort, security and familiarity – all the things you know and love. However, growing older presents challenges to independent living and at some point, most seniors will need some form of help with daily living activities.
Routine activities may become more difficult and household items and fixtures that were once commonplace could present a safety hazard. Health and mobility issues associated with aging become an important priority when determining where you will live out your golden years in comfort and safety.
But for seniors who want to continue living where they are most comfortable, home modifications provide a solution.
Remodeling for Healthy Aging will assess your home and install items and fixtures to improve convenience, safety and mobility that enable you to live in your home for as long as possible or “age in place.” We can also provide home assessments for seniors who are not currently experiencing challenges, and install proactive measures so you will be prepared before the need may arise.
Live your life at home, and on your terms. Learn how home modification can inspire confidence to enjoy your home in safey and comfort.
