Our lives change, but our homes don’t!
A home assessment can help make your home more safe and easier to live in.
Your home is the center of your life. So, it only makes sense to make changes in it so it continues to suit your life.
That’s why we provide a comprehensive home assessment service. It helps you understand how well your home meets your needs now and what you can do so it can continue to do that in the future.
We offer a comprehensive service that includes assessing your home for safety, preventing falls, accessibility (including wheelchair accessible) and balance issues.
Home safety assessment
Many home accessibility providers will conduct a generic home safety assessment (if they do one at all). The problem with not having one or by having a generic one completed, you can leave yourself open to accidents at home. That’s rarely an issue for the provider. But, it can be a major issue for you, since statistically a fall will have a lasting effect on your life and health.
Our proprietary home assessment takes into account how you use your home and your body interacts with it. It will allow for a completely customized home assessment.
You will not only learn the changes you can make to improve home safety, but also the basics of home safety that can help you for the rest of your life.
Hand-in-hand with a home safety assessment is fall prevention. The thing you need to know is that preventing falls will protect you from the number one danger in your home. Which, also is the number one thing that can cause you to have to leave the home you love.
Fall prevention is more than just installing a grab bar or picking up clutter, too.
As we grow older, our bodies will experience changes that can affect our health, minds, balance, even how we experience the spaces we live in. Our hearing, vision, range of motion and more can be affected.
Those things will increase the chance you fall at home. That’s why preventing falls is so important.
For home remodeling & modifications
One of the services we provide is helping folks get their homes remodeled so it will support them later in life. The home assessment is one of the tools we use to help you plan the changes in your home.
Most people don’t realize that a doing a home assessment earlier in life is actually better. This is true because the information you gain from it will help us build a plan for your home. So many times if assessments were done early, changes could be made over time vs. having everything done at once.
