Howard County is one of the most desirable areas to live in Maryland. Nestled comfortably between Baltimore and Washington DC, the area runs the gamut between urban and rural. Whether you live in Clarksville, Fulton, or Highland, you may have thought of all the reasons to age in place.
Here at Signature Elevator and Accessible Design, we specialize in accessibility solutions for every kind of residence. Don’t worry—whether you live in an urban or a rural setting, we have the solution for you. If you’re not sold yet on it, we’ve laid out some of the best reasons to age in place in Howard County.
Many people find themselves drawn to nursing homes or assisted living facilities because they think they provide a safer environment. But the truth is that this is not always the case. Nursing home neglect occurs with disturbing regularity. Aging in place may be the healthier alternative.
Then there is the emotional toll that comes with moving out of home. Homesickness is all too common among those who live in nursing homes, and it can lead to depression and physical decline.
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the fact that aging in place affords a more sterile environment than those afforded by nursing homes or assisted living facilities. You might want to thoroughly consider which solution is truly the best for your health or your loved ones’.
Some people are put off from the concept of aging in place due to the notion that it’s too expensive. It is true that in most cases some modifications to your home will be necessary, but that doesn’t mean they have to be costly.
For those who can afford it, a pneumatic vacuum elevator is a versatile option with a minimal energy footprint. But there is also an abundance of cheaper options such as ramps or chair lifts. These are certainly a more affordable alternative than the hefty price tag of a nursing home or assisted living facility.
One of the simplest but most enticing benefits of aging in place is familiarity. As the years go on and your mobility becomes restricted, many people enjoy taking comfort in what is familiar. What could be more comfortable than a home you’ve lived in for many years?
Very few people like the idea of moving into a nursing home or assisted living facility. Thankfully, you don’t have to. If you’re interested in installing a chair lift or home elevator in your Howard County residence, we’re only a phone call away.
