A survey conducted by Met Life Mature Market Institute shows the average monthly base rate for assisted living in Illinois during 2010 at $3,418.00. That is over $41,000 a year! Why pay that much to live away from home? You have maintained your home for many years so now allow your home to nurture you as you age.

Most homes were not constructed to be handicap accessible homes. At Home Services Direct, we strongly believe that, as we get older, we should be able to remain in our homes instead of being forced to move to an expensive assisted living facility. That’s why we created our Aging In Place division, which specializes in home improvement modifications to allow you to remain there in safety and security. Plus, with our NAHB Aging In Place Certification, combined with over 30 years of experience as a general contractor, we’re the clear choice when it comes to providing services to help with all of your aging in place and accessible living needs.

We Can Create a Space That’s Perfect for Accessibility and Safety

The majority of homes are not designed or built with increased accessibility in mind. We’re on a mission to change that. A few of the home improvement options we offer include:

  • Floor plans offering rooms to be more wheelchair accessible
  • At least one barrier-free entry
  • Widened door frames and corridors
  • Non-slip floors and secured carpeting
  • Easy-open closet doors
  • Wheelchair ramps
  • Front loading washer/dryer with reachable control panel

Communication is key with us, which is why we’ll keep you informed throughout the entire process. Plus, we’ll work with your style to create a place that’s elegant and comfortable.
