Through remodeling and modification, you can have a home that helps improve your daily life. It can make your life easier and more enjoyable. Home modifications are physical changes made to one’s home to accommodate for the changing needs of the elderly or disabled, to enable aging in place.  As we age, our mobility and physical strength diminish and many aspects of a home that were once functional become difficult. Home modifications can be as simple as changing water faucet handles from knobs to levers or as comprehensive as the construction of an accessory apartment or elder cottage on the property. These modifications should be focused on supporting activity performance in the home.
