Home modifications can be the one item that can keep a senior at home rather than requiring admission to a facility. The most common site for renovation is the bathroom. This allows the senior to have safe access for hygiene, bathing and toileting. Modifications may be as simple as grab bars or may include total redesign of the bathroom. Other areas that may require modifications are stairways (stair lifts or elevators), entry ways (ramps), bedrooms (closet access) and kitchens (cooking and eating sites). There are many reputable individuals and companies who can design and assist with home modifications.
