Moving a loved-one into your home and becoming their full or part-time caregiver is a huge undertaking. It can lead to some major adjustments for you and your family, which will likely include home renovations or updates.

Making this transition as smooth as possible will lesson the stress and frustrations that could arise during this situation. Independent living products are constantly being designed and built to benefit both seniors and their caregivers. These products allow seniors to handle their daily lives with little to no assistance with optimal safety in mind.

Things to Consider

  • Downstairs Bedroom Addition or Renovation: Having a downstairs bedroom is often the most important need for the situation. Stairs are usually one of the hardest thing to manage for the elderly. An office space can easily be converted to a well-equipped bedroom. Having a brand-new addition onto your home may be the only option if room is sparse. Adding bed-rails to the bed will aid in independence at night & morning time.
  • Accessibility: A Threshold Ramp is easy and safe to install. They come in many sizes and configurations and are the most cost-effective solution for accessibility. If stairs in the home are unavoidable, a Power Chair-Lift can be installed.
  • Bathroom Modifications: Adding Grab-Bars is essential; they provide support and stability when it’s needed for independent & safe bathing/toilet needs. Additional recommendations include Elevated Toilet Seats with arms, non-slip safety mats for floors and tub/shower, bath/shower chairs or benches and hands-free faucet controllers.
  • General Remodeling/Equipment: Other things that may be helpful or needed could include a Hospital Grade Bed, door-way widening for wheelchair access, tray tables for eating, dressing aids, Power-Lift Recliner and security cameras for general peace of mind.
