Home Modification

Home design that cares about your future.

Remove Barriers & Install Independence.

The choices you make about the structure and layout of your home environment will greatly affect your ability to live comfortably and prevent falls as you age. As Certified Aging In Place Specialists, we evaluate your current home design and consult on changes that will enhance your quality of life at home. Once modifications are suggested from a clinicial perspective, we work with a trusted network of reputable Delaware contractors to see the project through.

Projects include ramps, grab bars, bathroom and kitchen remodeling, exterior remodeling, railing installation, door widening, tub cut outs, and more. Our comprehensive approach includes recommendations for assistive technology and service needs as well.

If your home design is one of the biggest barriers between you and independence, we can help.
