Universal Design and Certified Aging in Place Specialists
What is Universal Design?
In a Universal Design home considerations are given to convenience, comfort and safety. Features are evaluated on how convenient and easy they will be to use as time passes and physical abilities change.
Universal Design is not only for senior citizens and those in wheelchairs; the goal is to accommodate those of all ages, sizes and abilities.This concept allows all residents to live in the home as long as possible with safety and independence.
Universal Design reduces the stress of a home that is too restrictive for your mobility and no longer functionally fits. Universal Design is not institutional instead it is practical and beautiful.
Is your home still a good fit?
Universal Design means safety as well as comfort.
Your kitchen is the gathering place for family and friends. Updating to a more modern work space to accommodate abilities and accessibility can include varying heights of counters and sinks, adding adjustable pull outs and lever handles.
For a bathroom that works better for the entire family consider the ease of such amenities as walk-in showers to make a comfortable as well as functional retreat. Perhaps a step-in tub and grab bars will increase your comfort and safety.
With the comfort and security of improved lighting for better visibility, zero threshold doorways, first floor suites, residential elevators, a family safe room and the latest in monitoring technology we can blend safety invisibly into your decor.
