Home Modifications for Senior Citizens

With advanced technology and the increasing number and quality of home healthcare services, more and more seniors every year choose to age in place instead of assisted living facilities.

More specifically, 90% of people over 65 want to stay in their homes as long as possible, and 80% of them think their house is where they will always be.

However, these houses are not always ready for senior use and might need some updates to fit a certain lifestyle.

These are the main modifications your house needs for aging in place:

  • Installing ramps
  • Improve lighting
  • Installing senior-friendly flooring
  • using smart home technology
  • Adding handrails
  • Minimizing height difference
  • Installing a stairlift
  • Using a specialized smoke alarm
  • Installing cooling and heating systems
  • Choosing levers instead of knobs
