Residential Elevators & Aging in Place

The baby boomers do not plan to go quietly into the night. “Stay in my own home and never move” is the wish of 85% of American age 50 and older according to the American Association of Retired Persons. They are modifying their existing homes now with home elevators or vertical platform lifts, as well as other accessible features so that they can remain in their homes and neighborhoods perhaps for the rest of their life. The cost of an assisted living facility for one year covers the cost of an elevator at least once and probably twice. Doesn’t it make sense to invest in any product that keeps you in your house and forestalls these expenses?
