Living well, aging well, at home.
The difference between our Aging in Place remodel projects and those you might see mentioned elsewhere is in the full remodel that takes place, usually developed with a Universal Design approach.
Ours is a comprehensive approach, which ensures safety and convenience for those who are aging at home, plus improved property values, and excellent indoor air quality throughout the construction process as well as after.
Designed for beauty, premium functionality, and custom fit for those living in the home, aging in place doesn't need to feel sterile or hospital-like. Comfort, convenience, and stunning design all work together so all may thrive and enjoy life and each other in the home.
We work with people who have mobility requirements of all kinds at Pathway. What's important is your comfort, your ability to live, move, and thrive, and achieving your desired independence and quality of life in your home.
Note: We understand that a need for aging in place solutions can arise quickly and require more immediate solutions. If that is the case, we recommend seeking a reputable handyman service.
Aging in place ideas
Aging in place home remodeling methods are meant to create a safe place that is easier to live in.
Bathroom functionality and accessibility is very important when it comes to aging in place. Things such as adding an easy-access shower, changing the layout of the room, or even changing the location of the bathroom can help out tremendously. In addition, raising the height of your toilet or adding a seating area in your tub or shower can greatly improve functionality.
A kitchen designed specifically for aging in place can drastically improve the health and well-being of a person. Constructing larger gaps between counters and islands can make it much easier to maneuver, especially for wheelchairs. Easy-to-reach storage, easy-to-operate faucets, and easy-to-open appliances are great for improved functionality.
Having rooms easily accessible should be a top priority for a person aging in place. Features such as widened hallways, widened doors, elevators, or lifts make great additions to a home.
Reducing Slips & Trips
Trips and falls are one of the leading causes of injury and death in the 65 and older age group. Aging-in-place remodeling projects for reducing slips and trips include slip-resistant flooring and adding grab bars.
