Aging in Place
At Shignanski, we know that there is no place like home. We understand that your home is an environment you are accustomed to and comfortable navigating. So let us help you bring your past into your future and create a space that fits your changing needs and reflects your personality.
Looking to ensure your home is safe and accessible for years to come? Making simple changes, like installing motion sensor lighting, creating wider entryways and hallways, and adding non-slip flooring, can help make your home more liveable for seniors with mobility issues or disabilities. You may also want to consider installing an elevator lift or an accessible shower with a barrier-free design and adding a main-floor laundry to make life easier. With just a few simple updates, you can help your family members maintain their independence and stay safe in the comfort of their own homes. So why wait? Start thinking about how you can make your home more comfortable for you.
Aging in place is a popular choice for many seniors and older adults. This means staying in your own home as you grow older, rather than moving to an assisted living facility or nursing home. Some several different programs and services can help you stay in your home as you age, including:
Support services: These can include things like home care, transportation services, meal delivery, and help with household chores.
Government programs: Your local, provincial, or territorial government may offer programs and subsidies to help you stay in your home as you age. Some examples include financial assistance for home modifications, tax credits for caregivers, and funds to hire an elderly care worker.
Community resources: Many community organizations and programs can help make it easier to stay in your home as you age. Examples include local seniors’ centers, public libraries, and support groups.
If you’re interested in learning more about aging in place, the best thing to do is contact your local government or visit the website of your provincial or territorial government. You can also visit Canada.ca/Seniors for more information about seniors’ issues and how to support aging in place.
