Whether you’re a senior looking to make your home more accessible or a caregiver seeking to improve the living conditions of your loved ones, this guide will provide you with valuable insights and practical tips to help you age in place comfortably and safely.

Economic and Emotional Benefits of Aging in Place with Accessibility Solutions

There are 3 major benefits to having residential accessibility solutions in your home for seniors: 

Cost Savings Compared to Assisted Living Facilities

One of the most significant advantages of aging in place with accessibility solutions is the cost savings compared to moving to assisted living facilities. Assisted living facilities can be expensive, often costing thousands of dollars per month. In contrast, investing in accessibility solutions can be a more cost-effective option in the long run. These one-time investments can help you avoid the ongoing costs associated with assisted living facilities, allowing you to use your financial resources more efficiently.

Maintaining Independence and Sense of Belonging

Another key benefit is the ability to maintain independence and a sense of belonging. According to a survey conducted by AARP, nearly 90% of seniors would rather remain in their homes if given the choice. Seniors value their independence and would rather not move to a facility where they may feel isolated or disconnected from their community. Accessibility solutions such as home elevators can help seniors navigate their homes safely and independently, allowing them to continue living life on their own terms.

Improved Quality of Life and Well-Being

Research has shown that seniors who age in place tend to have a higher quality of life and better emotional well-being. By remaining in familiar surroundings, seniors can avoid the stress and upheaval often associated with moving to a new place. Additionally, the ability to maintain social connections and engage in meaningful activities within their community can contribute to a greater sense of purpose and fulfillment, leading to overall improved mental health.

Home Layout and Space

It’s crucial to consider your home’s layout and available space. Some products, such as platform lifts, require minimal modifications to your home and can be installed in a relatively small space.
