The Most Popular Aging-in-Place Projects

October 21, 2015 9:15 am

For those who plan to age in place in their current home, household improvements in key areas can boost their overall quality of living. According to a recent Aging-in-Place Report by HomeAdvisor, more than half of homeowners aged 65-plus desire home automation systems, such as thermostats and lighting; nearly 15 percent desire assistive technology, such as automated countertops and shelving; and 10 percent desire in-home health monitoring systems, such as heart rate trackers or fall monitors.

The report also uncovered the most common projects related to aging in place. These are:

• Adding Grab Bars

• Building a Disability Ramp

• Installing a Stair Lift

• Adding a Personal Alert System

When hiring a professional to complete an aging-in-place project, almost three-quarters of homeowners make contact with the professional themselves, followed by the homeowner’s daughter.
