The Need for Aging in Place Remodeling

Most of the 121,000,000 homes in the United States have been constructed without consideration for Universal Design or accessibility.  Universal Design refers to wide-ranging concepts intended to produce buildings, products and environments that are inherently accessible to older people, and people with or without disabilities.

The Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies estimates the number of homeowners age 65 and older will increase by 32% over the next decade.

25% of the U.S. population is over age 50.

Many common physical conditions brought on by aging, trauma, or illnesses require home modification, such as orthopedic issues, stoke, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries.

Sonrise Construction understands the challenges these conditions present and will work with you to propose effective and proper design modifications for your home.
