Today we’d like to offer a few helpful aging in place tips. “Aging in place” is simply a phrase that means you are able to stay in your home, even as you age, for as long as possible. Modifying your home is the best way to age in place. Home modifications make homes safer, help you move around more comfortably, and make you less prone to accidents. Our expert technicians install products such as home elevators, stairlifts, and wheelchair lifts to make it easier for customers to stay in their homes for decades to come.
Make Sure That Your Home is Accessible
It’s ideal for a home to have one way in and out without any stairs. However, if that is not the case, that’s where we come in handy. Our wheelchair lifts, stairlifts, and residential elevators help remove some of the strain on your body. As you age, steps can cause a lot of tension on the knees, back, and joints. Steps are also a top cause behind falls. If falling is a concern for you, reach out to us today so that we can discuss what option is best for you.
Invest in Having the Best Bed for Your Back
This tip will benefit anyone. If you plan on living in a home forever (or even temporarily), you should make sure you have a mattress that doesn’t cause back pain. If you don’t sleep on a very comfortable bed, then it’s time to get one. You deserve restful and rejuvenating nights sleep. Anything that allows for less tension or stress on your body is well worth the investment.
Always Keep A List of Necessary Resources
The point of home modification devices is to give you your independence back. However, you should never feel ashamed to reach out for help. Everyone needs help and assistance in life. It’s super helpful to keep a list of essential resources (in large, bold letters) close to you so that if you ever need support or become disoriented, you can call someone right away. What’s even better is that technology has come a long way. You can also change the font size on your phone so that the letters appear larger.
