Aging-In-Place

Join us for a limited opportunity to tour our Aging-in-Place project.

What is Aging-In-Place

City Homes has long been committed to the concept of "right-size living," meaning we work with you to build or remodel a home that works for you, your family, and your lifestyle - whatever that may entail. We believe in building beyond the design by making choices that make your home last a lifetime

Aging-in-place is when a person lives and ages in their residence of choice for as long as they wish or are able to. Investing in specific home modifications gives individuals the peace of mind they need to safely live independently.

City Homes' Open House

Friday, October 1st to Sunday, October 3rd | NOON - 6 PM

City Homes is proud to introduce our Aging in Place home. This is a unique opportunity to learn how homes that incorporate Universal Design and other innovative features allow you to stay in your home longer by making life easier and more comfortable. Rebecca Remick, Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) will be on hand to answer questions and inspire you with possibilities to enhance livability, yet still maintain high style.

Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist

As a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialists (CAPS), our team has gone through extensive training to better guide our clients in building or remodeling a safe and secure home that incorporates universal design elements. Such wellness amenities include: walk-in tub/shower, zero-step entry into the home, elevator installation, widened hallways, slip-resistant flooring, and easy grip faucets.

To see these modifications in-person, visit our CAPS Open House. For any additional questions, please contact the builder, Rebecca Remick, at (612) 217-2853.

Kitchens

Kitchen modifications can help a person continue to live independently and safely. Hard to reach counters, sinks and appliances make cooking difficult and can potentially lead to accidents. Kitchen modifications can include: lowering countertops and sinks, installing accessibly appliances, easy grip faucets, easy-to-read controls.

Elevator

While some people might be hesitant about the idea of installing an elevator in their home, installing an elevator or lift can make all the difference when considering a long-term home to age in place. An elevator is a simple solution to prevent stair-related accidents in disabled or aging individuals.

Bathrooms

Bathrooms are the most dangerous room in the home for those with mobility issues. To minimize risk we recommend installing walk-in showers, a raised toilet, non-slip floors, and adjustable height shower heads.

Zero-Entry Home

If you look closely, this home features a zero-step entrance. A zero-step entry is exactly what it sounds like: an entrance with NO steps! ⁠

The truth is that the likelihood of an adult aged 65 years or older falling drastically increases! So much that based on a 2018 study by the CDC, 27.5% of adults aged 65 years or older reported at least one fall in the past year (35.6 million falls). Incorporating a zero-stair entrance means that the homeowners can safely and securely enter/exit the home without the fear of falling.⁠
