As the saying goes, "Home Is Where the Heart Is," and if you're planning to stay in your beloved home for years to come, we recommend that you take inventory of the areas that may require upgrading or revisions as you grow wiser. 

Comfort and functionality in every season of life are essential. 

  1. Accessibility Matters: Create a house plan for future mobility needs. Many retirees prefer to age in place, meaning they want to continue living in their current home independently as they grow older. Accessibility features are crucial to ensure they can do so safely and comfortably. An accessible home also provides peace of mind for both retirees and their families. Loved ones can feel confident that their wise family members are living in a safe and comfortable environment.

  2. Safety First: Check your home's safety features, including smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and fire extinguishers. Ensure they are in good working order.

  3. Comfortable Living: Invest in high-quality, comfortable furniture and create cozy living spaces that cater to your lifestyle.

  4. Kitchen: Often the heart of the home. Ensure you have accessible & easy access to storage space that doesn't require a ladder and is functional and easy to navigate. 

  5. Bathrooms: Think about installing a walk-in shower based on your current or future needs. 

  6. Energy Efficiency: Consider upgrading insulation, windows, and using energy-efficient appliances to save on utility costs

  7. Organize: Keeping clutter to a minimum maintains a sense of order & reduces the stressful process of purging decades worth of treasures. We recommend investing in a few totes. Keep those aside with all of your special family heirlooms and condense the rest.

  8. Outdoor Spaces: Create a low-maintenance outdoor space to enjoy nature without the burden of extensive upkeep.

Preparing your home for long-term living is a commitment. With regular maintenance & adaptations, this will help ensure that your forever residence continues to meet your needs for many years to come.
