An Aging in Place Home Evaluation is for everyone age 55 or better who wants to stay in their home as long as possible.
Aging in place can mean you want to stay in the home you’ve lived in for 25 years, you’ve downsized, or moved into a 55 plus community. The goal for aging in place is to live on your terms in a home you call your own.
I conduct a holistic survey of your home, interior and exterior to create a report that will help you to lay the best foundation for staying in your home. These home improvements not only offer an easier to use home now but stabilize the working order of your home in the long-term. I evaluate the details of your home as well. For example, flooring to make standing in your kitchen easier on your legs and window treatments that help you rest, reduce glare, and are easy to use.
An Aging in Place Home Evaluation is a wise way to begin creating a plan to create a home that is safer, easier to use and more comfortable. You'll be on the path to a home that is perfect for you now and is prepared for the future you want.
An Aging in Place Evaluation is Perfect for:
Everyone who wants to ensure their home is safe and accessible
Adult children concerned about their loved ones home safety and comfort.
Anyone who is having difficulty getting in and out of the bathtub or shower.
Anyone who is experiencing falls or tripping around the home.
Clutter that is out of control.
A home that is limiting your overall ease of use and mobility.
How An Aging in Place Evaluation Works
1. The first step is to schedule a design discovery call with me. I'll get back to you as soon as possible to confirm your appointment.
2. We'll then schedule an Aging in Place Evaluation for your home. I'll use my evaluation tools to tour your space, take notes, and documentation.
3. I'll then go back to my studio to create your evaluation report.
4. We will then meet in person to review your report and answer your questions.
Our situation is very difficult. We are a middle-aged couple coping with my husband's early onset Alzheimer’s. My mind has been all over the place since his diagnosis, but never more so than when the addition was started. Susan had the knowledge necessary to address our special needs and concerns we have about aging in place. She is perfect for her specialty/niche as demonstrated in the way she treats those of us going through uncertain times.
