AGE IN PLACE SAFE DESIGN
Safety Home Additions In Sarasota, Bradenton & Lakewood Ranch
Aging can be hard on your body. Things that were once easy have become more difficult. Age in Place is all about planning space for long term or for an aging family member. This concept takes into account wheelchair and walker access, vision complications, arthritic troubles and many more situations. The goal is to create a functional, safe home our clients can be happy in for many years to come without compromising good design. Some Age in Place design components include no-slip surfaces, wider doors and hallways and walk in showers without a threshold. Removing a bathtub and replacing it with a shower basin complete with an area to sit down and grab bars makes the bathing process so much safer. We strongly encourage planning ahead and taking advantage of these methods where applicable. Renovating to accommodate new needs does not have to compromise the quality or beauty of your home.
