Renovation & Relocation as we age: where a person resides can be strongly tied to quality of life. As a person ages, physical changes influence the suitable options for housing. While there are various alternatives for senior living, often the senior prefers to stay in his/her current home which can require a few or significant modifications. It’s beneficial to find a professional who has specific experience making renovations for seniors.
If relocation is chosen or required, there are special considerations for older adults. Specialists in relocating older adults should not only be informative to their clients but also sensitive to the possible emotional and physical as well as financial needs surrounding the move. Often seniors downsize significantly upon relocating which involves a host of additional factors to be considered. A relocation specialist may even take on the role of project manager in helping customize a safe and positive transition.
