Aging in Place Griffith 

Aging in Place Griffith 

As you get older or your loved ones get older, there are dozens of things to think about. One of the most important considerations is where you and your elderly loved ones will live—is a nursing home or assisted living facility an option? What about a retirement community that provides support for elderly persons? Or, would you rather remain in your own home?

At Doppler Construction, Inc., we provide remodeling and renovation services for aging in place, Griffith. To learn more about our aging in place renovations for your home, reach out to us today. 

What Does It Mean to Age in Place?

Aging in place is a term that’s used to describe a situation where elderly persons age in the same home that they’ve been living in for years instead of moving into a new home that may be more well-designed for their physical limitations. Many people prefer to stay in their own home as they age, even in light of physical disability—moving from one’s home can be a traumatic change that is too emotional for an elderly person.

When a home undergoes aging in place renovations, it is remodeled to accommodate for physical limitations and disabilities that are common with age and certain conditions. 

Aging in Place Renovations for Your Home

At Doppler Construction, Inc., we specialize in aging in place renovations. Examples of ways that we can make your home more aging-in-place-friendly include:

  • Widening hallways and doorways. For elderly and disabled individuals who require the use of a wheelchair, narrow hallways and doorways—which are especially common in older homes—can be a huge barrier to mobility. We specialize in widening hallways and doorways to accommodate wheelchair access
  • Replacing showers. The bathroom can be a dangerous place for those with disabilities or physical limitations. We can replace tubs with roll-in showers that allow for wheelchair access. We can also lower toilets and install grab bars near toilets and showers for additional safety.
  • Lowering cabinets and countertops. Those who are in a wheelchair may also have difficulty accessing countertop space, cabinets, light switches, and other areas of the home. We can lower these appliances and features to make them more accessible.
  • Installing ramps. Like bathrooms, stairs can also be a hazard for elderly individuals, and pose an impossibility for those in a wheelchair. Where stairs exist, we can install wheelchair-accessible ramps. This is possible both in and outside of the home. 
  • Replacing floors. Slick floors can be dangerous and create a fall hazard for the elderly and disabled. We can replace slick floors with textured flooring for improved safety.
  • More. If there are other elements within your home that make it difficult to safely and effectively live in your home, just let us know. We’ll work with you to perform renovations that make the most sense based on your needs.
