Munster Aging in Place

Munster Aging in Place

For many homeowners in Munster and surrounding areas of Indiana, the prospect of getting older may bring worries about navigating a home and maintaining independence. To be sure, many homes are not elderly-person friendly, featuring far too many stairs and other obstacles to those with aging or disabled bodies. That being said, though, leaving the home that one has lived in for years can also be upsetting. As such, remodeling a home to make it friendlier for those with physical limitations is often the best option. For Munster aging in place renovation services, please reach out to our team at Doppler Construction, Inc. today.

Munster Aging in Place – Remodeling Your Home So that You Can Safely Navigate It

Whether for yourself or an elderly loved one, remodeling your home so that it can be safely navigated by someone who is disabled or has physical limitations may be the best choice. Home renovations for aging in place accommodations are often less expensive than moving, as well as more comfortable and convenient for a family. At Doppler Construction, Inc., we are experts in aging in place home remodels, as well as Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)- compliant renovations. Some services that we can provide to help you or your loved one get around your home more efficiently include:

  • Wheelchair ramp installations. We can replace stairs in a home or on the exterior of a home with wheelchair ramps that can be navigated by those who cannot walk on their own. This is often critical, as even a single step can serve a huge barrier to someone who relies on a wheelchair for mobility
  • Motorized chairs. Ramps are a great option for sets of stairs that are relatively short, containing between one to four steps. For larger staircases, though, a ramp usually isn’t a great alternative; instead, we recommend the installation of a motorized chair that can be used to carry the individual from one level of the home to the next. This allows an incapacitated individual to easily access all levels of their home.
  • Bathroom remodels. The bathroom is both an absolutely critical part of the home as well as one of the most dangerous for those who are disabled and aged. To be sure, a bathroom presents multiple opportunities for slip and fall accidents. For elderly persons, remodeling a bathroom with the installation of a walk-in shower (that a wheelchair can be rolled into), safety rails surrounding the tub and the shower, and lower countertops that are accessible via wheelchair can make a huge difference in that person’s ability to use the bathroom without assistance and their overall quality of life.

The above are just a few of the major home renovations that can be made to make aging in place more feasible. In addition to the above, doorways may be widened, kitchen countertops lowered, cabinets replaced, and more to ensure that physical limitations or not, a home is usable to an elderly person.
