What is aging in place design?

Aging in place design is one of the newest options for mature adults in the housing industry. You are active and plan to be for a long time, but considering the next 20-30 years can be critical when purchasing a home. Our homes are designed to not only be incredibly designed showplaces, but have subtle architectural details that allow for long term aging solutions. Wide doorways and spacing in our kitchen and open living areas allows for ease of mobility. Southern Lifestyle Homes offers home plans that include first floor living with guest spaces on the second floor. Aging in place is not just for those looking to retire. Our communities in Hampton Park and The Retreat at Marymont Springs offer a mix of families, young professionals and retiring adults alike. People of all ages appreciate our well thought out communities and the ammenities offered in the homes we build. We like to call our version of Aging in Place, Aging in Style.

Benefits of Aging in Place Design

Aging in place architecture is much different from standard home building techniques. Common elements of aging in place are wider doorways that accommodate wheel chair access, comfort height toilets and faucets, first floor living, and open floor plan design. Our expertise in aging in place offers one of a kind architecture that is specifically intended for the needs of adults of all ages.

The planned communities that Southern Lifestyle Homes offers are designed for the needs of active aging adults. From open green spaces for outdoor exercise, to specialty built clubhouses that allow for community social events, our lifestyle communities bring out that perfect neighborhood feel. Community home owners have a real sense of fellowship with their neighbors.

From the unique designs of our homes, to the overall community feel of our neighborhoods, Southern Lifestyle Homes offers a long term solution for aging adults. Eliminating common problems that aging adults face with their homes is already taken care of on the front end, allowing our neighborhood residents to stay in their homes with out major remodeling. Also with open floor plan design, any in home care that might be needed in the future can be accomplished easily and safely.

If you require in home care at a later stage in life, aging in place can offer substantial savings over assisted living. According to the National Aging in Place Counsel, assisted living can cost up to $86,000 annually versus $23,000 for aging in place with in home care. This cost savings over several years can bring additional vitality and independence in your later years, while allowing you to stay in the home you love.
