Barrier Free Home Modifications
making your home safer and more comfortable
Adaptable Homes specializes in immediate or planned barrier-free home modifications that allow for independent living now and in the future.
Planned home modifications let you plan today for future needs
The goal is to create an environment that allows for aging in place planning. For some, this means taking a critical look at their existing home and creating a plan that will incorporate and allow aging in place. Assisted living areas can be very taxing not only on family budgets but also on family members physically and emotionally. Planning for the future now allows you the flexibility to stay in your own home safely and comfortably.
Adaptable Homes can also assist you with home modifications when a family member is born with a disability or is dealing with an illness, accident or emergency that changed their ability to function safely in your current home. One of the Adaptable Homes' Barrier-Free certified team members will sit down with your family to discuss problem areas within your home.
This team member will then provide a road map on how to achieve the perfect solutions that will fit your specific home and budget. You can be assured that even the most challenging areas of your home can be modified to not only offer accessibility but also aesthetically fit beautifully with the current design of your home.
Adaptable Homes works with parents, caregivers, advocates, and children of aging parents to achieve comfortable living spaces for your loved one.
Adaptable Homes sees each individual as part of a team, a team that is working to make your home comfortable, safe, and accessible. We work with reputable vendors to offer safety-enhancing items such as grab bars, walk-in tubs, roll-in showers, access, threshold, and wheelchair ramps and more. Adaptable Home pulls together the team and creates solutions that get you or your loved one living safely and independently within their own home.
What Others Say
Very knowledgeable and friendly
They were prompt and courteous when showing up for the initial estimates, Very knowledgeable and friendly. We decided to have all the work completed by them and could not have been more pleased. They were quick, maintained constant communication with me for any changes to the initial plan that needed to be made and were very competitively priced. I would highly recommend them for any home repairs, construction, or handyman work. Very courteous and a pleasure to work with.

How do I get started?
Adaptable Homes works together with families, advocates and caregivers to ensure that every aspect of the home allows independent living now and in the future. An Adaptable Homes team member will sit down with each family and discuss problem areas and create solutions that work for your specific family. Following is a list of things to get you started thinking about how to incorporate barrier-free living into your home:
List problem areas
in your home
Make a list of areas within your home that cause a problem for you or your family member to live independently now or in the future.
Look at all entry points of your home both inside and outside the home, such as doorways, walkways, steps and driveways.
Evaluate your home
from the perspective
of your loved one
Are they a child? Do they use a
wheelchair or walker?
Evaluate/Monitor your loved one as they go throughout their day
If you are an advocate for a family member, but do not live in the house, plan a visit so you can monitor your loved one as they go throughout their day. This will give you first hand experience on where the problem areas are in order to create solutions for a safe and comfortable living environment.
Prioritize your critical needs first
After you have made your list, prioritize your most critical needs first. This will help an Adaptable Home team member organize a strategy that best fits your needs and budget.
Make a list of things that would improve the ability for caregivers to provide care.
