Seniors

 

With over a quarter of the population being seniors and entering their golden years we at In-Trend Home Solutions found a need to make our home safer as we age. Failure to consider and invest in your home as part of a health care plan will often result in institutional care. Records indicate that 40% of admissions to nursing homes are related to falls in the home. Due to the growing costs of institutional care, a more cost effective approach is to modify your current home.

Our Belief is that seniors would like to stay in their current home that you built so many lasting memories in. We at In-Trend Home Solutions can provide home modification solutions to improve the lifestyles & accessibility for seniors in their homes. We assess what modifications your home will need, and we will only do the modifications that are necessary at this time. With effective modifications to your bathroom, kitchen, hallways and entrances we can increase the value of your home while modifying it to be a safer place for seniors to live.
