Mike Esposito is a baby boomer facing the same decisions you are, plus he has an 85 year old mother living out of state. We want to provide our older customers the ability to stay in their homes, living independently and safe. As we age we all become aware of the challenges of bending, standing, walking up and down the stairs and getting in and out of our tubs or showers. We have been helping senior home owners in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, and Chesapeake enjoy there retirement years in their own home, since 1996.
Where do you start? Safety should be first when your contemplating home remodeling in Virginia Beach. Typically, you should start by installing grab bars in your bathrooms and staircases; adding safety seats to your tubs and showers. Anti-slip mats in your tubs and showers are a must. Espo Tip: give away your ladders, no more climbing. Hand railings should be on both sides of staircases as well as hallways. Note: if you install hand railings in your hallways be sure they are installed at the correct height and will not interfere with a wheel chair.
If possible you will want to move your bedroom to the first floor. If that is not possible, you need to start thinking about how you will get up and down the stairs.
When considering aging in place in Virginia Beach, it is a good idea to change door handles and faucets to lever types. By using levers you can just push in the direction you want rather than gripping a handle. Showers should have hand held shower heads.
Now that you have the safety issues addressed, you are ready to move on. The following is a list of changes that you will need to include in your plans. Give us a call, we will meet with you and help you set up a plan with a real budget and time line.
