Our series on creating a safe and comfortable Empty Nest just might need a summary for today. Consider the following: 1) all on one floor living, either redesign your home or build a one-level ranch home. 2) increase lighting especially to eliminate dark places where people might slip and fall. 3) easy car parking, large garages or wide open parking spots. 4) all interior doors to be 36" with swing away hinges. 5) move the electrical outlets up to 18" making it easier. 6) get rid of those throw rugs 7) lever handles, no more door knobs. 8) grab bars in all bath areas. 9) low threshold entry to showers. 10) comfort height toilets. All of these ideas are easy but make a huge difference in your new home. Let us help.
