Aging-in-Place Design is a family affair.

"So here's the deal...never in a million years did I think I would need to reach out to an "aging in place" specialist as a 40-something..."

A friend and now client of ours Kimbley Craig came to us with unfortunate news that her mother had a very serious fall and was now confined to a wheelchair. She realized very quickly that the bathroom in their home "HAD to be redone" as her mother "certainly didn't have the capability (or the dexterity) to step over a tub".

"They came in and gave recommendations for small changes that our family could make, and also gave recommendations for ease of access throughout the home".

Our recommendations are time tested concepts we incorporate into all our designs because simply put they make sense functionally and esthetically, many of which you probably wouldn't recognize as Aging-in-Place. Check out these examples of simple solutions for aging that look beautiful!
