Home accessibility modifications help you prepare for the future.All-Craft is a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist for design and construction services in accessibility-home modifications.
Whether you are aging and want to remain in your current home, or are adapting to a life changing event, All-Craft’s home modifications can help you live comfortably and safely in your own home for years to come.
There are three main reasons for home modifications:
Aging in Place Without Urgent Needs – People are renovating to prepare for the future and to have longevity in their home.
Aging in Place with Progressive Conditions – You don’t have to be a senior to experience chronic or progressive health conditions. Home modifications are made to help any individual who requires special modifications to life comfortably and independently in their home.
Aging in Place with Traumatic Change Needs – People who have experienced abrupt or traumatic change can still live in their home safely with accessibility modifications.
One’s Desire to Remain in One’s Home
Home modifications enhance quality of life and enable families to enjoy their home to the fullest.
From small modifications such as grab bars, lever faucets, and adjustable shower heads to extensive accessibility renovations, including barrier free showers, and electric powered adjustable kitchen cabinets, it is always a good idea to consult with a local Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) to help you decide the best modifications to make for your lifestyle.
