Carol is AMAZING!! Her in home consult was quite comprehensive, including coaching for some ergonomic ideas for my husband while he transitions through the phases of his mobility issues. She spoke real life solution ideas with me and my husband, and was very caring and compassionate and never made us feel rushed.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines aging in Place as: “the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level.”

We believe that Aging in Place is the ability to live in the environment of your choice by making adjustments to ensure success.

Everybody is different regarding how they live and what they feel is important. 

Aging in Place consulting is a person-centered service that guides you in the decision-making process through the eyes of a clinician. 

 Occupational therapists know how you function in your most private spaces and will help you create a plan specific to your physical needs and those of your caregivers.

  • The people who appreciate my services are the deliberate decision-makers who plan and want to know all their options before committing.
  • Adults who want to stay in their homes as they age have yet to decide where to start. 
  • Families need guidance and ideas on how to care for a loved one at home.

The first step is to do a free introductory discovery call to identify the challenges. 

If it’s the right fit, we will invite you to schedule a virtual consultation where we will discuss potential solutions that match your budget, timeline, and preferences.  

The service is provided virtually to allow adult children living in other parts of the country to be part of the discussion.

At the end of the session, you will have a plan to solve the challenges and a To Do list that you can begin to implement immediately. 

  • What makes me different is that I look at the whole person when looking at Aging in Place solutions. 
  • We believe that living independently isn’t just about putting up grab bars — it’s also essential to have the physical strength to get up off the floor, have good lifestyle habits to stay out of the hospital and be able to get help when you need it.

  • Occupational Therapists are experts in daily function and disease progression.
  • We assess the client’s unique needs and create Aging in Place plans that maximize function and make it easier to live in their spaces.
