The ultimate guide to aging in place renovations
If you’re an aging senior in Canada, you may be interested in aging in place renovations, which will allow you to remain in your home later in life. CAPS stand for Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) and consists of a set of best practices that help make your home safe for you as you age.
Seniors, as well as those with mobility issues and disabilities, can all benefit from CAPS renovation consulting and implementation. At All Canadian Renovations Ltd., we specialize in CAPS renovations that are beautiful and functional. You get all the benefits of CAPS renovations without adding a clinical feel to your home.
How does the aging in place renovation process work?
Aging in place renovations are designed to help you live a safe, convenient, and comfortable life as you age. Each senior has different abilities and needs, so the process begins with a comprehensive consultation.
What to expect from your aging in place renovation consultation?
A certified aging in place specialist from All Canadian Renovations Ltd. will come to your home to consult with you. Then, your needs will be assessed to determine which renovations may need to be made to accommodate you.
For example, if you are living comfortably in your home but you are concerned about staying stable in the shower, grab bars may be recommended for installation. If you are having difficulties with stairs, small staircases could be replaced with ramps, or a chairlift can be installed.
Our aging in place renovations are tailored to the individual
You are a unique person and have your own unique needs. Your CAPS professional will observe your living conditions and abilities and help determine a renovation plan that will ensure you remain safe and comfortable.
Common aging in place renovations – what can I expect?
Several different renovations may be recommended based on your needs; these are the most common areas we see that need to be renovated:
Grab bars for toilets and showers are commonly installed in bathrooms. Your bathtub or shower may also be replaced with a zero-entry shower, ensuring that you do not have to step up into the shower.
Hallways may be widened to accommodate wheelchairs and walkers, and redone in a non-slip, non-reflective material that makes it easier for you to walk through your home.
Smaller staircases may be replaced with ramps or have additional guardrails installed. Large staircases may require the installation of a stairlift.
Lowered countertops can make it easier to use your kitchen, especially in a wheelchair, and additional storage may be added to the lower areas of your kitchen to make it more convenient to use.
Light switches can be lowered to make them easier to access, and additional lights can be installed to help increase overall acuity.
These are just a few of the potential changes that may be made to your home – the recommendations we make will be based on your current and future health and disabilities, the current safety features of your home, and more.
