Aging in Place
Aging in place is a term used to describe a situation where a person or people want to live independently in the residence of their choice for as long as they can physically afford to. It involves remodeling the residence to accommodate the person having less mobility or good balance. Often times the remodel process is called barrier free design.
Here are some of the reasons clients might consider a barrier free design for their residence.
- Create a level entry and a more open floor plan.
- Create the ability to live on one level of your residence.
- Remodel the kitchen and bathroom to allow for reduced mobility or wheelchair access
The time to consider making some of these changes is now, before they are actually needed. It is difficult to think about the idea that a loved one could be limited in their daily functions, the thought of moving them out of the home and the area may become a reality if design considerations are ignored.
At Your Kitchen and Bath we are ready to assist in this process by providing our client’s with innovative and beautiful solutions. Having a barrier free shower or a walk-in tub installed in your bathroom does not have to look institutional; it can be a beautiful addition that you will love for years to come.
