For some families, remodeling the home of an adult child or other family member to accommodate an elder is a good alternative to look into. For more information, please read our article, "Shared Housing: An alternative to nursing homes or assisted living."

Staying At Home

We help people:
  • Make it easier to accomplish activities of daily living (dressing, eating, bathing).

This Universal Design Addition Project shows a complete large house addition for a client who had been paralyzed in a car accident. The client lives virtually independently in the addition yet has support nearby in the original house.

The handicapped accessible renovations included installation of an elevator, a new garage with a ramp for access to the vehicle, a large exercise room to help with rehabilitation, and a customized bath with space for a Hoyer lift to assist the owner in moving between the tub and the dressing table.

A set of "before" and "after" exterior photos is shown below. For more photos of this successful project, please view the Universal Design Addition Project.
