Perhaps you are one of millions of Americans who would love to stay in your home well past retirement and into your golden years. Or, maybe mobility and ability challenges have you looking for ways to make the rooms in your home more easily accessible to yourself or a loved one.

Before the “For Sale” sign goes in the front yard, take a few moments to sit down with your loved ones and learn about the many ways to make your home safer and more livable. Some involve simple changes that might make you say, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Others involve assistive devices and aids to daily living that can make everyday tasks much easier and safer. On yet another level, home modifications can literally create new, safe spaces within your home.

Remember to weigh the cost of alternative care versus the cost of making your home environment more accessible through modification. Home modifications and accessibility equipment like stair lifts, bathroom safety, ramps, and vertical platform lifts usually are not covered by Medicare or Insurance, but may be through non-profits, waiver programs, reverse mortgages, special home improvement loans, foundations and churches. If you need information about financing options, your accessibility equipment provider or contractor can help.
