GUIDING PRINCIPLES

Aging In Place

According to a number of independent studies, the majority of older Americans prefer Aging In Place, which means living at home safely, independently, comfortably and with dignity. It has been the experience of our clients that aging in place often requires the renovation of living environments that were not designed to accommodate acute physical needs. Such renovations are the focus and specialty of Renovations for Life, LLC.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Universal Design

Design that works best for those with physical needs can work well for people of all ages and abilities and should not stigmatize the user.  While safety and accessibility is absolutely critical in the design, aesthetically pleasing solutions are possible and should be sought.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Visitablity 

Designing homes, living and work areas so that all have access whether living in the home, working in the space or visiting.  Visitable designs include accommodations for wheelchairs and walkers such as wide doorways and hallways and low profile thresholds.   It is our belief that communities that accommodate all users benefit from the diversity of the inhabitants.
