Modifications for a dementia friendly home
If possible, most families choose to keep their loved one with dementia at home. The goal, of course, is to prolong health, happiness, and dignity. Simple modifications can be made to enhance abilities as long as possible in the home setting which is already familiar and comfortable.
There are circumstances which necessitate a move into a more structured setting. Our combined experiences at Forever Home Modifications have leant themselves to many opportunities to assist families after a relocation. However, we have found it beneficial to have the new home already modified to optimize the comfort and function upon arrival by eliminating unnecessary changes and frustration as much as possible. Forever Home Modifications will coordinate with families and community management to make helpful accommodations before, during or after the move. Many adult communities are excellent at looking at the big picture but we like to individualize our clients’ home to their particular needs and wants so that they will love where they live.
