Seniors Want to Age in Place Without Making Their Home Look Like an Institution

September 29, 2009

BLOOMFIELD, Conn., Sept. 29 /PRNewswire/ — As they age, seniors need more safety elements in their homes, particularly in the bathroom. They also need more convenient workspaces in the kitchen and easier to handle storage options. Some people see these changes as home improvement projects; many seniors see it as an intrusion.

“What they don’t like is the institutional feel that medical adaptations give their home,” says Andrea Tannenbaum, President of Dynamic Living. “They want products that fit in with their decor, just like anyone else.”

Dynamic Living recently launched AdaptMy.com, the first online store to address this stumbling block to living at home longer.

AdaptMy.com stepped outside of the ‘medical’ box to offer a universally designed selection to help seniors age in place, including designer products that would enhance any home. ‘Universally designed’ is an industry term meaning that the products can be comfortably used by people with a wider range of abilities.

When you think about home improvements for seniors, the first thing that comes to mind is grab bars. In addition to standard stainless steel, the AdaptMy Bathroom section displays chic grab bars that look like sculptures. More choices include colored grab bars and designer bathroom collections with matching robe hooks, toothbrush holders and towel bars.

The kitchen improvement section contains ADA compliant sinks, faucets, accessible kitchen islands and pull-out shelving that makes it possible to reach every corner of the cabinet.

In addition to the unique set of products, Dynamic Living paid attention to making the website itself accessible; including larger text and bigger pictures. People who are blind appreciate that AdaptMy.com is also screen reader friendly.

Seniors and people with disabilities now have their own website to shop for products that make their home more comfortable; AdaptMy.com is filled with products to suit their special needs and tastes.

Dynamic Living Inc, serving seniors since 1997, is a leading distributor of products that promote a convenient, comfortable and safe home environment . They can be reached at 866-993-0783.
