Home Decisions For Today And Tomorrow

As a Certified Senior Advisor and a Certified Relocation and Transition Specialist, Leah and Jon will provide thoughtful and comprehensive solutions for your specific needs. We look forward to assisting you and your family during this important time in your lives.

Aging In Place

It is the desire of many older adults to remain in their home for as long as possible. Often, with a clear plan, updating and adapting your home to meet the needs of today and tomorrow can be done to achieve the following:

  • Independence
  • Safety
  • Ease of Use
  • Ease of Mobility

A small glimpse of modifications to improve functionality, access and safety include:

  • Zero-step entrances
  • Adjustable/adaptable work spaces and pull-out shelving in kitchens
  • Curb-less showers with attractive grab bars in bathrooms
  • Non-slip and non-trip flooring
  • Widening doorways to accommodate wheelchair and walker access
  • Lowering light switches, raising outlets, brighter task lighting

Our professional organizing services, along with our Next Steps Network of contractors, interior designers, home and community-based services will guide you through effective solutions to accommodate your on-going needs.
