Home modifications are changes made to adapt living spaces to meet the needs of people with physical limitations so that they can continue to live independently and safely. These modifications may include adding assistive technology or making structural changes to a home. Modifications can range from something as simple as replacing cabinet doorknobs with pull handles to full-scale construction projects that require installing wheelchair ramps and widening doorways.
According to a recent AARP housing survey, “83% of older Americans want to stay in their current homes for the rest of their lives,” but other studies show that most homes are not designed to accommodate the needs of people over age 65.
Atlantic AllCare can consult with the client on the potential home modifications that may be required and make recommendations based on the needs developed from our initial evaluation. As these needs change, Atlantic AllCare can make continuing recommendations to assure that such needs continue to be met at the highest standards possible.
