We Help You Enjoy Your Own Home in the Golden Years
Tedesco Remodeling can help you stay in your home, more comfortably and safely. The right alterations make all the difference.
What Is “Aging In Place?”
Aging in place means remaining in one’s home safely, independently and comfortably, regardless of age, income or ability level. It means the pleasure of living in a familiar environment throughout one’s maturing years and the ability to enjoy the familiar daily rituals and the special events that enrich all our lives. It means the reassurance of being able to call a house a “home” for a lifetime.
How Long Do You Plan To Live In Your Current Home?
If you are like the majority of Americans over the age of 45, you want to continue living in a familiar environment throughout your maturing years. According to the AARP, older home owners overwhelmingly prefer to age-in-place, which means living in your home safely, independently and comfortably, regardless of age or ability level.
How Should You Modify Your Home To Make It More Comfortable?
To age-in-place, you will probably need to modify your house as you get older to increase access and maneuverability.These modifications range from the installing bath and shower grab bars and adjusting countertop heights to the creating multifunctional first floor master suites and adding private elevators.
