According to research by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), www.aarp.org, nearly 90 percent of seniors want to stay in their own homes as they age, often referred to as “aging in place.” Even if they begin to need day-to-day assistance or ongoing health care during retirement, most (82 percent) would prefer to stay in their homes. Some of the areas of concern when thinking about Aging In Place remodeling: easy access to things that you use every day, ability to move around your home with ease, ability to get in and out of your home, and of course safety.

Kitchen Remodeling
This is the main component for the Aging In Place remodel. The kitchen has always been a place for socializing and entertaining. Kitchens often host friends and family, and in some cases, can be the focal point of your entire home.

ADA-compliant appliances, lower cabinets and mirrors, electric smooth cooktops, multi-level countertops, flooring and lighting are areas of expertise in which Empire FM can bring to life.

Bathroom Remodeling
Safety is the foremost thing to keep in mind when considering an Aging In Place bathroom remodel. Statistically, more accidents occur in the bathroom than any other room in the home. By designing the bathroom space correctly, you can reduce the chance of slips or falls and create a space that is easy to use for everyone.

Location, ease of movement, ADA toilets, grab bars, stand-up shower conversions, adjustable shower heads, shower seats and flooring are all areas of expertise in which Empire FM can help improve the quality of life in your home.

Interior Home
In general, safety features such as non-slip floor surfaces, entrances without steps, wider doorways and proper lighting are all areas of concern that can be improved by Empire FM with a great design plan.
