As we age, most of us prefer to stay in our home, where we raised families, built our lives, know our neighbors and enjoy the best memories. Besides staying independent longer, there can be perks to aging in place. There are a number of factors to consider when looking at home modifications.
Value of Home Modifications
Being home instead of entering senior living can be very smart for the pocketbook. Investments in home modifications making it easier to age at home are relatively minor to the long-term cost of most assisted living facilities and can increase the value of your home significantly.
The average cost of modifying your home for senior living can range from $700 to $9000, normally its under $10,000, though the cost can vary significantly based on the amenities and level of comfort and aesthetics you want. That might get you two months in most assisted living facilities.
