“Seniorize” Your Home – When Physical Challenges Happen
For most, it’s not fun to admit we’re getting older…
Or even want to recognize that others view us as seniors but unfortunately that’s out of our control. Physical ailments can lead to serious long lasting challenges that threaten the ability to stay in the home and remain independent.
A Lifestyle Improvement Loan can provide cash to make a house handicap accessible. Instead of the stereotypical slopping metal ramp in the front of the house, perhaps a small home improvement project of a slopping brick walkway and doublewide entry doors for wheelchair access gives more comfort. For one major renovation, an elevator was installed which may actually increase home resale value as the baby boomer generation ages. We believe making the necessary changes to a home is not just about accommodating a physical challenge but more importantly how can a home be more enjoyable and give freedom of movement when our bodies change.
Are you or a loved one living with a physical challenge that’s impacting your quality of life?
