Ensure Your Current Home Will Be Your Dream Home for Years to Come
Often as people age, physical challenges make it increasingly difficult to navigate the home. For many seniors, their dream home is the one they can live in comfortably at any age. At Fort Bend Builders, we are excited to craft your dream space and make it more functional for your specific needs with age-in-place remodeling services.
For those older adults wishing to make their home more suitable for independent living, Fort Bend Builders has the ability to retrofit a home to meet age-in-place requirements. Our designers are familiar with the technology and tools available to help seniors and those with disabilities to grow old in the comfort of their own home.
Common Senior-Friendly Modifications
At Fort Bend Builders, we know a home designed with aging in place in mind provides great peace of mind, both for seniors and their loved ones. For many, retrofitting reduces the need for assisted living facilities or a retirement community. We can retrofit any existing home to allow for greater freedom, decreasing dependency and ensuring comfort at home. Some common modifications include:
- Walk-in showers. These showers don’t have a high edge to step over, making them much more accessible for those who have difficulty lifting their feet up and over a shower threshold.
- Walk-in tubs. Walk-in tubs can be a great solution for those with compromised mobility. The low-step entry threshold makes getting in and out of the tub quite easy, and the ability to sit when bathing eliminates most fall hazards.
- Hallway widening. Wider hallways will be able to accommodate a wheelchair or scooter in the years ahead, should it ever become necessary. The minimum recommended hallway and doorway width is 36 inches.
- Grab bars. Because seniors are most affected by falls, placing grab bars in strategic places is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to prevent an accident.
Our designers will work to understand your age-in-place remodeling needs and plan to meet them. Call the team with the ability to deliver exactly what you want, on time: Fort Bend Builders.
