When many people think of aging in place, they consider it an alternative to going to a nursing home. Sometimes, you or your loved ones have conditions that require around the clock care. But is a nursing home the only option. These days, there are many quality in-home care options, like assisted living. Fortunately, many houses in the Maryland, DC area can easily be remodeled for accessibility. Here are some of the reasons why aging in place in your Maryland or DC home is the best.
Most people would agree that the familiarity of home far surpasses the environment of a nursing home. You have the freedom to follow your own schedule and have better peace of mind and privacy at home. When you choose to age in place in your home, you will have the emotional benefits of familiar surroundings which will help you enjoy your golden years.
A nursing home may provide many amenities, from adjustable beds to on-call service. But imagine what type of features you can add to your home. A stairlift or residential elevator is a great addition to your Maryland or DC home, no matter what stage of life you are in. You can use a residential elevator for your older friends and relatives, for example. A residential elevator can fit into many parts of your life, unlike a nursing home.
Although there is a lot of time and expense that goes into remodeling your home to make it accessible, there is just as much of a financial commitment in paying for nursing home care. But when you choose to invest in your home, you are going to see a long term benefit. Adding a home elevator increases the value of your home. Whether you eventually chose to sell your house or leave it to your children, putting money into your home means that you will get a return on your investment.
