As we get older our mobility can often become impacted. Our bodies can become more frail, our range of motion can lower and tasks which we once took for granted can become complex. At such times our homes, previously the place where we felt most comfortable and at ease, can become difficult to navigate. As such, many elderly people have no choice but to move to nursing homes or assisted living facilities where their daily routine can be monitored and limited to increase its level of safety. However, it isn’t easy for many people to just get up and go. We build an emotional attachment to our home over time. It’s where we store our memories and keep our most prized possessions, where we put our lives on display. It can be a horrible feeling to know that you have to leave that all behind. In fact, in a study conducted by Clarity and the EAR Foundation it was found that the average senior fears losing their independence and having to move to a nursing home more than death itself. Fortunately, there is a solution.

Here at Community Renovations we have a wide variety of specializations, everything from commercial construction to residential properties. One of our most acclaimed programs is our barrier-free program, which involves outfitting homes with additional features and remodeling them to make them more accessible for those with disabilities. As an extension of that program Community Renovations is able to offer Aging in Place services as well. Basically, Aging in Place is a program which adapts your Detroit, MI home to your current needs so that you can continue to live there in comfort and security. We at Community Renovations think that, while assisted living facilities are certainly what some people might require or prefer, if you don’t want to leave your home you shouldn’t have to. You need to feel safe and stable in your home. You need to be in control. Community Renovations can help you feel that way again with changes like:

• Grab bars for additional stability.
• A walk-in tub and/or shower to simplify the bathing process.
• Lifts or ramps to make getting up stairs a breeze.
• Wider doorways and a less cluttered floor plan to accommodate wheelchairs, canes or walkers.
• New fixtures which require less strain to operate.

These are just a few of the many changes Community Renovations can bring to your Detroit, MI home. So if you have mobility issues but you’re not ready to head to an assisted living facility give us a call and give our Aging in Place program a try.
