More and more Americans are choosing to stay in a familiar place – their own homes – as they grow older. Home modifications that improve accessibility such as no-step entries and wheelchair ramps and lifts, walk-in showers and devices like bathroom grab bars and hand-held shower heads can improve the safety and ability of seniors or disabled individuals who wish to remain living independently longer. Taking into consideration the cost of nursing homes and assisted living services, the idea of “aging in place” makes sense.
