Home Modifications

Home Modifications can give back your independence

Remain At Home Senior Care’s core mission is to help our aging senior population maintain independence in the comfort of their own homes. Oftentimes this requires family assistance or the help of home caregivers, but on many occasions, a home modification or renovation is all that is required to help seniors stay safely and comfortably at home.

A New RAH Enhancement For The Communities We Serve

While providing home care for seniors in our area, we have noticed that many of the tasks that frustrate our clients could be alleviated by a simple home modification. Please see the list below for some of the most common home modifications that can directly affect a senior’s ability to maintain independence in their home:

  • Grab Bars and Rails – in bathrooms and hallways assist persons in preventing falls and improving mobility
  • Transfer Benches – also called showering benches or transfer chairs, these enable individuals to get in and out of showers, tubs and wheelchairs with little or no assistance
  • Traction or Non-Skid Strips – installed most commonly in bathrooms but also anywhere a floor is hazardous or slippery including kitchens and staircases
  • Traction or Non-Skid Strips – installed most commonly in bathrooms but also anywhere a floor is hazardous or slippery including kitchens and staircases
  • Widening Doorways and Hallways – to accommodate for wheelchairs and walkers
  • Smoothing Floor Surfaces – removal of molding, carpeting and anything on the floor which limits the mobility of a wheelchair
  • Wheelchair Ramps and “Stair-Glides” – for persons unable to manage stairways
  • Push Button Door Openers – to automate the opening and closing of doors
  • Lighting – modifications within the home and around the property for increased visibility and security
  • Climate Controls – installing larger digital displays and / or remote controls
  • Pull Out Shelves – also referred to as roll-out, glide-out or slide-out shelves, these enable easy access to deeper spaces for clothing, food and other storage
  • Accessory Apartments – both for the elderly and live-in caregivers
  • Weatherization – such as storm windows, screening and air conditioning
  • Security Systems – remote monitoring and personal emergency response systems
