Aging in Place

Aging in Place

Aging in place - Rapid City, SDAging in place is a term used to refer to people who have chosen to remain in the home of their choice for as long as they are able, while being able to get any support or assistance they need to do so safely and with a high quality of life. Simply, you live where you get to remain in your home … safely, independently and comfortably, even if you have specific needs.

What aging in place means for most people is that certain aspects of your home should be changed (through home remodeling), so that your house can be what you need it to be. Specifically, so it can support you and any needs you might have as you grow older.

Aging in place remodeling uses principles of Universal Design (meaning, something is designed for use by anyone, regardless of abilities) to make your home easier, safer and more enjoyable to live in. This concept is becoming more appealing to people, since no one wants to move just because they are older or have health problems … especially if it means moving into some type of assisted living!

That’s where choosing to update your home to meet your current and any future needs comes into play.

In today’s world, people want to stay in their own homes and are more comfortable with living in a familiar community, with people they care about. Aging in place remodeling can transform you home into something that is beautiful AND functional; reducing the danger of a fall or other emergency, so you can enjoy your home for life.
