Remodeling and Modifications

Do you know that 10,000 people a day, in the US, celebrate their 65th birthday, and when asked the question, the majority answer that they want to stay in their current home. Alternatives, such as moving to an independent or assisted living facility can cost from $2,000 to $4,000 per month. Taking a $3,000 / month average equates to $36,000 per year in out of pocket expense.

If an extensive remodel and community assistance can keep you in your home for another 2 years, you may be saving around $72,000 in assisted living expenses. Not everyone has that kind of money in hand, but there are a number of means to fund your investment in your home remodel. Who knows, your home remodel may allow to stay in your home for years and years, resulting in even greater savings for you.

Often the first modifications address fall prevention, since “falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries, among older adults.” Installing grab bars and improved lighting today, and then planning for tomorrow can keep you in the home that you love.
