Aging in Place Assessments
Do you know someone who has trouble accessing and utilizing amenities around their home, issues moving around the home, or who has experienced a recent injury due to aging and/or other factors?
A recent health change or decrease in mobility can cause one to request the helpful skills of an Aging in Place Specialist.
A Certified Aging in Place Specialist can visit your house and create a report that will give guidance, using principles of Universal Design, on how to maximize safety in your home environment based off of an Aging in Place Assessment.
It would not necessarily mean renovation around your home, although it often does.
Sometimes it's widening pathways in the home, putting up grab bars or stair railings, recommending tub benches or non-slip rugs.
The potential home changes to be made by an Aging in Place Specialist are very wide ranging but also beneficial for the overall safety of your home.
This is a service that is very unique because of the helpful fact that the Aging in Place Specialist at AMC Contracting holds a medical background and is able to often anticipate what the future holds for an individual carrying a progressive disease.

An Aging in Place Assessment typically holds the concerns of the home through a checklist, notes, sketches, and photos. The concerns focus on the physical aspects of the home (design, layout, floor plan, physical features, technology, wiring, plumbing, access points, construction materials, finishes, doors, windows, lighting, flooring, cabinetry, bath fixtures, kitchen amenities, switches, and controls) as well as the physical and emotional needs of the Aging in Place occupant (mobility, sensory, or cognitive concerns, if any).
When an Aging in Place Assessment is put together, the Aging in Place Specialist has a complete outline of how to structure a program for dealing with the most pressing issues of the Aging in Place client.
Aging in Place Assessments can also include:
· Basic Medical Information
· Social Relationships
· Activities of Daily Living
· Fall-Risk Evaluation
· Mental Health History
· Adaptive Equipment
· Environmental Assessment
· Summary of Recommendations
· Resources Based on Recommendations
