Introduction
  • Home is a place where you find peace.
  • Both from inside and outside you feel a deep
    serenity when you step into your house.
  • After a hard day at work or a tiring journey, you
    feel anxious to reach your home as soon as you
    can.
  • Therefore, the place should bear a comforting
    atmosphere.
  • You should be able to disclose all your worries,
    disappointments as well as happiness and pride
    here.
  • It is said that the most of our dependence upon
    our home is related to its design and decor.

  • It is said that the most of our dependence upon

Introduction(Contt..)
  • Therefore, it is important for you to decide
    whether you would prefer living in a place that
    would grow and age with you,
  • or some place which you could abandon after you
    are done with it at a certain period of time, due
    to a shift in your workplace or for some other
    reason.
  • If your home is designed to suit your daily
    needs, then you can just renovate it and make
    certain changes to stay there forever.
  • On the other hand, building a new home after a
    certain period of time makes you undertake less
    stress, and also you have to invest in less time
    and money.

Aging in Place Remodeling vs. New Home Build
  • While you can build a new home as per your
    requirements and then give it away on rent or
    sell it after some time.
  • On the other hand, an aging in place model
    assures of a comfortable stay for a lifetime.

7
Aging in Place Remodeling vs. New Home Build
  • This is because the design of the house is
    perfectly created for all age groups.
  • The usual plan for an aging in place home is
  • Wide hallways and doorways, preferably 3 feet or
    more
  • At least one a bedroom and a bathroom on the
    first floor
  • Wheelchair accessible entrance and doorways, even
    in shower places
  • Cabinets low enough to be accessed by people
    moving around in wheelchairs
  • the most interesting aging in place home features
    is that you can just make specific changes to
    your existing home once in a while and make it
    more aging-in-place friendly.

  • However, it is always better to design your home
    wisely, as these changes are both time consuming
    as well as expensive.

Aging in place homes are customizable, rather
than the ones that are made using trendy fashion
  • Main factor that makes an aging in place home
    desirable is that it can be customized as per
    your needs.
  • An aging in place home design offers much
    comfortable features in the first place, but you
    can always add up to your comfort level.

10
Aging in place homes are customizable, rather
than the ones that are made using trendy fashion
  • For instance, you can add bars for support on the
    walls of every room and the corridors too, in
    order to ensure safety while walking or moving.
  • However, this needs a bit of future planning.
  • If you wish to install such bars later in future,
    you have to make sure that you need it.
  • Ask your builder to make provisions accordingly,
    so that if you wish to do so in the future, you
    can straight away get it done.
  • If you want to install the bars or make certain
    changes in the house later without such
    provisions made in advance, you could land up in
    serious expense issues.

11
Multi-generational rooms
  • Another amazing feature of the aging in place
    houses is you can create additional rooms, which
    you can later on develop into new rooms with.
  • E.g if you build an additional room with an
    attached bathroom on the first floor, you can
    make a partition between the two rooms later in
    the future and use them as two separate bedrooms.

12
Features that must be present in a aging in place
home design
  • The following features must be there for you to
    age in place with your house comfortably
  • One of each important parts of the home should be
    within the first floor. This includes a bedroom,
    a bathroom, a kitchen, laundry room and living
    room.
  • Avoid creating entry steps. This will enable
    people with wheelchairs to move around the house
    without any difficulty.
  • Staircases must have railings on both sides to
    avoid accidents.
  • The cabinets must be made at a place where people
    with wheelchairs can also reach them for their
    needs.
  • Higher toilets to enable easier sitting and
    standing.

  • When you plan to stay in a home forever, it is
    very important for you to make sure all parts of
    the house serve a special purpose.
  • Talk to your builder and ask them how easily the
    changes can be done and also let them know that
    you are looking to installing certain additions
    that will help you make changes easily in future.
  • For a home that is meant for a lifetime, it is
    worth showing effort.
