Aging in Place is the idea that a home is constructed for able-bodied adults in a way that is wheelchair and walker friendly for the future. This trend has become popular in the last 5-10 years with retirement-aged couples and extended families.
“I am passionate about building these Forever Homes because they just make sense. If you take a fall and need a wheelchair, the last thing you want to do is move to a new house; that will just make the situation harder. You want to stay in your home and focus on getting better, you don’t want to add even more stress to your life,” says Brock Scott, owner of Elite. “We prefer to build our new-construction homes in this way, and the change is very subtle. In most of our homes, you wouldn’t notice the differences unless we pointed it out to you.”
The following attributes make Forever Homes fully-functional, but wheelchair and walker friendly.
- Wider doors
- Wider hallways
- Curb-less, walk-in showers
- Open floorplan with wheelchair-friendly layout and large rooms
- Optional lower countertops
- No steps or stairs, inside or outside
