How to Upgrade Your Parents’ Home for Aging in Place

independent Living Ann Arbor

Do you have an elderly parent or loved one who lives alone?

Do you or a loved one have mobility issues? Are you worried about their risk of injury, or just their ability to take good care of themselves?

Are you considering making some home modifications?

Around 90 percent of seniors plan on living in their own home for at least five to 10 years after turning 65, according to AARP. 

According to Consumer Affairs, these are the most popular DIY home improvements you can make to your loved one’s home:

  1. Install grab bars
  2. Add outdoor ramps
  3.  Install a bathroom heat lamp 
  4. Consider life alert technology
  5. Replace faucets with touchless technology
  6. Update your flooring
  7. Improve your lighting
  8. Replace doorknobs with lever-style handles

If your loved one isn’t able to safely stay in their home anymore, it may be time to think about making the switch to independent living.
