Aging In Place includes the idea that you can continue to live on your own, instead of with family or in a nursing home, if you are given the necessary help, and if your living situation is adapted to your abilities. Home Modification Is aimed at making your place Senior Friendly. Recommended modifications may only include little things like removing trip hazards, or installing grab bars. Or it could mean more extensive renovations such as widening doorways, and installing ramps or lifts. Each situation may be different. It’s important to have an evaluation done by an experienced professional who can help develop a modification plan appropriate to your particular circumstances.
