How Do I Get my Home Modification Process Started?
Getting started on any kind of accessible home remodeling can be confusing and daunting. Seniors’ Choice offers this easy to use, step-by-step guide to get you started.
Step 1- Start by making a list of spaces in your home that are now or soon will be problem areas. Have a friend or family member assist you. Write them down as you go.
Step 2- Don’t forget the outside of the home. Look at driveways, walkways, steps and doors for barriers, proper lighting and accessibility.
Step 3- If someone in the house will be using a wheelchair; use a wheelchair for the assessment to experience the barriers more clearly and from that person’s perspective.
Step 4- Make a list of what items you would like to see or think would be beneficial in each area. Refer to the Seniors’ Choice online catalog to help familiarize yourself with what is available.
Step 5- Prioritize your list. This will help you and the Seniors’ Choice accessible home modification specialists know what to work on first and help guide your accessible home modification budget.
Step 6- Contact Seniors’ Choice to set up a low-cost safety inspection of your home or business. Your written lists will help move the process along and eliminate forgetting questions.
Step 7- An accessible home modification specialist from Seniors’ Choice will set up a time to visit you, assess your needs and take measurements of the areas.
Step 8- The Seniors’ Choice contractor will present you with the plans, drawings and any equipment needed and the time and cost associated with the project. Once you have agreed on the terms and the contract is signed, work can begin.
