To ensure your new home is suitable for aging in place, focus on key factors. Prioritize single-floor living to minimize stairs and aid mobility. Opt for wider doorways and hallways to accommodate mobility aids. Install handrails and grab bars in critical areas like bathrooms and stairs for safety and stability.

Choose slip-resistant flooring and adequate lighting throughout the home to prevent falls. Use lever-style door handles and faucets for easier operation. Ensure essential amenities like the bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen are easily accessible and user-friendly.

Consider future needs by designing the home with flexibility in mind. Consulting with a professional architect or contractor specializing in universal design principles can provide valuable guidance.
