Aging in Place – On-Site Housing Evaluation

Aging in Place design isn’t just about a grab bar in a shower… It is SO MUCH MORE!!!

GrabBar

 

There are many parts to the aging puzzle, not just housing. ADM Architecture has built strong business relations with the following industries and professionals that are a part of helping the aging make the best decisions for themselves and their families, including:

 

  • Contractors
  • Mortgage Specialists
  • Real Estate Agents
  • Retirement Financial Planners
  • Elder Care Attorneys
  • Physical and/or Occupational Therapists
  • Elder Care Advocates

When you schedule your consultation, here is a list of basic design ideas to discuss with us:AIP-addition08-BathRm

  • Wheelchair or walker maneuverability
  • Grab rails &/or blocking behind the walls for future installation
  • Comfortable seating heights
  • “Multi-generational home” design – live in home help, “granny suite”, Accessory Dwelling Units
  • Hard surfaces and low maintenance materials
  • Open spaces, wider hallways and wider doorways
  • Closets with two-tier shelving and rods, framing in stacked closets for future elevators
  • Lower kitchen counters by 2″-3″ (retrofit dishwasher and movable sink height)
  • Elevator (stacking closets for later, up and down) — cheaper than buying land!
