Here’s a quick checklist to help you think about what modifications might be needed
to make your home safer, more convenient and enjoyable to live in as a senior:
Doors - a minimum of 36 inches wide with lever handles
Entryways - non-slip floors and no throw rugs
Halls - at least 36 inches wide and well lit
Windows - plenty of windows for natural light
Kitchens - counters at sitting height of 26-28 inches
Bathrooms - comfort height toilets and ample grab bars
Garage - clutter-free and work benches for sitting
