Lever Door Handles – We recognize that we all can get various forms of arthritis and/or pain in joints as we get older. For easier grasp, we have installed latch handles on all interior doors.
Grab Bars / Handles at Showers, Tubs, Toilets – Installed in all bathrooms throughout the house by toilets and in showers.
Low Level Access Shower Stalls – All Tubs have been taken out and been replaced with Senior Friendly low level access showers. This enables easier access and mobility to and from the shower and enables accessibility by the Caregiver to assist in bathing if and/when needed.
Smoke and Heat Detectors – Located in all Bedrooms and Hallways throughout the House. Carbon Dioxide detector. Fan and Heat Detectors in all Attics.
Modification of Light Switches – We have reworked wiring and light switches to be easier to get to for both residents and staff.
Emergency Generator – We will be installing this to cover the house in case of a power outage as we did at both our Lansdowne and Park Crossing homes.
Full Sprinkler System and Fire Control Alarm System – This will be our first house will this be installed throughout the house. This will enable our residents, if necessary, to age-in-place even if they become fully non-ambulatory.
Furniture Selection – We have worked with and ordered furniture from a company specifically dealing with the Senior Industry. Many of the furniture will be used with Crypton Type (Fluid Repellant) Fabric but will still have a comfortable feel for our residents. We used an Interior Designer to match the Furniture, the fabrics, in conjunction with our Internal Wall Colors and Flooring.
Door & Window Widening – This was required per state code. But it would have been done anyway to help assist with ambulation in/out of rooms.
Wheelchair/Walker Accessible Ramps – We put in a Handicap Accessible Ramps (w/handles) at both the Front of the House and the Rear of the House.
Increased Light / Can Lights – We installed more can lights through common rooms and private bedrooms to increase candle watt for vision.
Gas Fireplace – We installed a gas line for the fireplace in both the main Den & Living Room.
Guard Rails – Inserted in the main hallway, back deck, and entrances/exits throughout the house.
Leveled Flooring – We have put tapered (curved and taped) flooring between the few spots of uneven floor levels.
Screened In Porch – We have a gorgeous screened in covered porch that is accessible via the Dining/Sun Room as well as a Side Corridor leading to one of the two Master Bedrooms.
