We work with a lot of Cincinnati patio home buyers. Some choose resale, some build a patio home just the way they want it. Some like a "regular" patio home community and others prefer to head to Cincinnati's ONLY 55+ Active Adult community. No matter the preference, we're here to help make the right choices to fit your needs.
And part of those needs? Assessing what key features you'll need in your home now and years from now.
Some builders have already grasped that "aging in place" is critical for patio home buyers. What is meant by the term "aging in place"? The condensed version is making a home suitable for a home owner to stay with a home for the long term. What are some of the key ways of developing a home for aging in place?
It's about long term considerations and enabling mobility:
- Minimizing stairs in and out of the home, from the garage, etc.
- Wide hallways
- Wide doors
- Grab bars installed next to the toilet, in the tub/shower, or if not installed, at least placing the mounts behind the walls to enable easy installation later
- Extra wide showers and no ledges to get over
Some builders have incorporated these in from the start, others will have an option fee to alter their basic plans to include things like the shower with the no ledge entry.
Now not everyone will need those extra features that accomodate walkers and wheelchair use, but just in case the need might be in your future, building today for your potential future needs is a smart move.
