With more Americans choosing to “age in place” (opting to stay in their homes rather than move to alternative retirement settings), home modifications often need to be considered in order to ensure the elder’s safety and well-being. Homes can be modified so as not to pose a danger to the elder’s safety and health when their physical abilities change.
805Aging assesses homes to identify and recommend modifications to prevent injuries from falls and other risks.
One-third of Americans age 65 and over fall each year. Environmental factors lead to about half of all falls that occur at home. In addition to tripping hazards and poor lighting, other risk factors include a lack of needed modifications, such as bathroom grab bars, handicapped showers, stair railings and ramps.
Home modifications help seniors maintain quality of life. They often prevent injuries that lead to a loss of independence and early admission to an assisted living or long-term care facility.
805Aging works with reputable community based Aging-in-Place specialists to ensure that your loved one can continue to age safely at home.
