Tips for Aging in Place

Whether you are looking to make minor changes or major renovations, there are plenty of ways you can prepare your home to ensure that it is accessible and comfortable so that you can age in place safely. Here are some tips from Inaugural Home Improvement:

  • Regularly assess your home for any potential hazards such as loose carpeting or rugs, slippery surfaces, poor lighting, or cluttered walkways.
  • Install grab bars in the shower or tub for extra stability.
  • Make sure all staircases have secure handrails.

Install Grab Bars & Non-Slip Surfaces

Eliminating the risk of slipping while getting into and out of the bathtub is essential for seniors. Installing grab bars in your bathtub or shower area can help prevent falls, as well as non-slip surfaces on floors and walls.

Add Comfort Features

Adding a built-in bench or wall-mount foldable seat to the shower/bathtub area can provide additional support for those who require it. Anti-scald valves on faucets and temperature controls will help keep the water temperature even throughout the duration of your shower.

Look Into Walk-In Tubs & Showers

Walk-in tubs and showers with low entrances provide an easy transition into and out of the shower without having to step over a barrier. These features also provide added safety benefits like grab bars, slip-resistant surfaces, adjustable showerheads, etc.

  • Consider installing a walk-in tub or shower.
  • Install grab bars & non-slip surfaces.
  • Add comfort features such as built-in benches & wall mount foldable seats.
