Aging in Place Crown Point

Aging in Place Crown Point

Many people love their home so much that the thought of moving is impossible to entertain. Indeed, for families who have raised children in their home and spent what feels like a lifetime in their neighborhood, moving may be out of the question. Unfortunately, however, many homes are not ideal for older persons—they may be too large, have numerous stairs, and fail to offer aging in place safety features, such as handrails in bathrooms. At Doppler Construction, Inc., we know how much your home—and staying in it—means to you. We specialize in remodeling that prioritizes aging in place, Crown Point.

Aging in Place Features

When you choose Doppler Construction, Inc. for your aging in place remodel for your Crown Point home, we’ll start by assessing your home and then making a recommendation about critical aging in place features. Some features that we have found to be especially important for aging homeowners and those with disabilities include:

  • Ramps. Those who are aged and disabled may have trouble navigating the stairs in a home—even one or two stairs could be a serious deterrent. At Doppler Construction, Inc., we can install wheelchair ramps both inside and outside of the home, increasing accessibility.
  • Wide doorways. Another issue that homeowners who are disabled and who rely on a wheelchair for support may run into is that of too-narrow doorways. If doorways are too narrow, wheelchairs cannot pass through. Our team can widen doorways, allowing access to all parts of the house. 
  • Handrails/grab bars. For older adults, bathrooms can be a dangerous place. Bathrooms are often slippery, increasing the risk of a slip and fall accident (one of the leading causes of health complications and death for older adults). Installing handrails and grab bars in bathrooms and other parts of the home is one of the easiest ways to reduce risks. 
  • Lowered countertops and cabinets. For individuals who use a wheelchair, cabinets, countertops, and sinks may be out of reach. Our team can lower countertops and cabinets so that they are accessible to disabled residents. 
  • Textured floors. As mentioned, slips and falls are a leading cause of injury amongst older adults. One thing that may contribute to the risk of a slip and fall is slippery floors. To reduce the risk of an accident, textured floors may be installed. 

In addition to the above, we can also remodel showers so that they are roll-in friendly, lower light switches, and make other accessibility changes.
