Are you ready for the unexpected? We have learned a lot more about that since the words "Covid 19" entered our vocabulary. Some have had family members who needed to shelter in place away from the rest of the family; some brought loved ones back home who were at risk in nursing facilities and were able to be cared for at home if the right features were in place.
Are you building a new home?
Do you need to add living space with a basement remodel (finishing that basement) or put on an addition?
Do you want to update that old bathroom and are looking into a bathroom remodel?
Incorporating “universal design” or “Aging in Place” principles can help you prepare for the unexpected now and be prepared for whatever the future brings.
Making any area “barrier free” can help when your older relatives come to visit – and they can have a bathroom that is safe and accessible with a low curb or curbless shower.
Putting in some decorative “invisible” safety features such as our invisible dual toilet paper holder.
our “shampoo shelf grab bar”
“corner shelf grab bar”
These wonderful "grab bars" that don't look like grab bars put safety features in place without making the room look “institutional”.
Each item including the decorative ring around the mixing valve is a grab bar that can support over 400 lbs when installed properly.
You can install a temporary threshold to conceal the water stopper on one of our curbless showers now for low entry – but it can be easily removed when the unexpected arises – a broken leg, a hip or knee replacement – a stroke – and you have barrier free access in minutes.
Insurance companies even recognize the benefits of Aging in Place living. https://www.farmers.com/learn/real-stories/aging-in-place/
