7 Steps To Help Your Home Age Comfortably in South Salem NY | South Salem Real Estate

A survey by AARP earlier this year found that 33 percent of adults older than 45 have modified their homes to allow them to age comfortably in place. 

Aging-in-place modifications can include: 

1.   Decorative grab bars in showers

 

2.   Step-free entrances

 

3.   Levered door handles

 

4.   Raised electrical outlets

 

5.   Bathrooms that can accommodate wheelchairs

 

6.   Widened doorways to accommodate walkers

 

7.   Higher toilets

 

Mike Leary, founder of Rochester, N.Y., firm Access Lifts & Ramps, says business is brisk and he expects it to continue to grow. “If my kids stay in the business, they’ll be the ones to make out well,” Leary says. “They’ll be taking care of me. I’m in the middle of the Baby Boomers.”
