Aging in place or Universal Design is a growing focus in the realm of home remodeling, as individuals seek to make their homes suitable for long-term living. With today’s current economy more people are realizing they will be in their home longer than originally thought. Every home can be converted for aging in place, with some being more suitable than others. Let’s explore the various aspects of aging-in-place modifications and the importance of thoughtful planning for the future. It doesn’t matter your current age, you never know when some of these elements can make life easier (i.e. broken leg, knee surgery, hip surgery, bad back, etc.).

Common Modifications and Customizations

Key modifications requested by homeowners for aging in place include primary shower enhancements. Curbless shower designs, shower benches, decorative grab bars (not your typical industrial hospital-looking bars of yesteryear), handheld showerheads, accessible shower controls, extra heat, wider doors, improved lighting, and additional handrails are all common adjustments. Ramps, too, can be added, when necessary.

Safety Features for Seniors

Safety is always a concern for aging individuals - especially if they are living alone. Alarm systems with panic key fobs or necklaces, security cameras, and video doorbells are recommended to enhance home security for seniors. Even door locks and garage doors can be controlled from anywhere.

Integration of Smart Home Solutions

Technological advancements, such as smart lighting control, alarm systems, video doorbells, smart locks, and cameras, are often integrated to enhance safety and convenience for aging residents. The focus is on making these technologies user-friendly and accessible to people of all ages.

Innovative Technologies and Trends

Our team views keeping up with the evolution of home renovation as one of our key responsibilities to customers. Each of our professionals engages in continuous learning, meetings with manufacturers' reps, and attending conferences to stay updated on the latest technologies and trends for aging in place.

Budgetary Constraints and Financing Options

Budgetary constraints always involve assessing current and future priorities. Financing and grants can provide the wiggle room that’s needed. We offer financing options to our customers. Also, some geographies offer grants in the form of government assistance, based on an individual’s financial situation.

Sample Aging in Place Projects

Two projects in our portfolio showcase remodels that cater specifically to the concept of aging in place. Our Silver Spring, MD Whole Home Makeover featured an in-law suite with several aging-in-place elements. The second project, Avenel-Potomac Primary Bathroom Renovation incorporated a curbless wet room, with grab bars, a shower bench, recess niches, ease-to-reach handheld showerheads, and other hidden elements for future mobility adjustments. The incorporation of aging-in-place elements showcases the forward-thinking approach to addressing future needs.

Aging in place is a thoughtful way to enjoy one’s home today - while ensuring a safe, comfortable, and accessible living environment for many years to come. If you or your loved ones are considering aging-in-place modifications, consult with our experienced professionals today.

Kitchen Remodeling Rockville Review. House To Home Solutions was recommended to us by a colleague when we were looking for a kitchen remodeling contractor, and we now understand why. Daniel Carrero, the President and owner, is a meticulous planner and craftsman. He and his team expect nothing less than their best at all times. They were fast (the entire job was completed in less than…

Kitchen Remodeling Potomac Review. We began our kitchen renovation the day after Thanksgiving – and by the new year it was clear that our contractor was a) not doing a good job and b) likely never going to finish – so we had the House to Home team step in. WOW – what a difference from Day 1! A real “sense of urgency” came over…

Home Theater Potomac Review. We hired Daniel Carrero to redo our family room that involved a new fireplace and the installation of home theatre set up. The job was finished with highest quality. Daniel also provided additional help when the need arose. He is a perfectionist and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend him.

Condo Remodeling | Arlington, VA. I hired House to Home Solutions under conditions that were far from ideal. The condo I was buying had a closing date that kept changing, all the walls needed to be repainted and all the carpet needed to be ripped up and replaced with wood flooring. Not only did the company deliver on time but the result was stunning. The…

I had used House to Home Solutions when a neighbors 100ft Oak tree well onto my house, smashing my addition. So as you can imagine working with insurance companies is the worst, despite all that Daniel was very professional and supportive in helping me work through it with them. Once we got the green light to start Daniel and his team worked efficiently in building…
