Home Safe Homes specializes in creating barrier-free homes for those who wish to age in place – that is, remain in their long-time home even when illness or disability alters their physical abilities and limits their mobility.
From grab bars and railings to wheelchair ramps and stair lifts, Home Safe Homes makes the practical modifications that enable older adults to maximize their independence and quality of life. Services include home safety assessments as well as professional designs, construction work, and installations.
Aging in Place
Planning for modifications and making structural changes to your home can help you continue living there comfortably and safely. As a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist, Home Safe Homes has learned strategies and techniques for designing and building attractive, barrier-free living environments.
CAPS designation identifies businesses that have been trained to help retirees and older adults remain in their homes safely, independently, and comfortably. A CAPS professional:
Meets the Housing Needs of the Age 50+ Population
Identifies and/or Makes Home Modifications or Changes to Help People Live Independently in Their Homes at Later Ages
Finds Solutions to Common Obstacles that Make Houses Unsafe or Uncomfortable
The Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) designation is the result of the work of NAHB Remodelers, in conjunction with the NAHB Research Center, 50+ Housing Council, and the AARP.
Accessible living design is a process through which the needs of a disabled individual are specifically addressed so their home environment is safe and comfortable. Accessible design may include products and design elements that are able to be used by individuals of all ages and with a wide variety of disabilities.
A home can be modified to accommodate various needs and physical capabilities. Minor home modifications to major renovations can make it easier for those having suffered an accident, stroke, or other debilitating disease to carry out their daily activities.
Stairways, bathrooms, kitchens, and even bedrooms become obstacles in a daily routine. This makes living with a disability challenging and frustrating.
