We feel there may be a market to provide a service where trained personnel can work with interested parties to determine what they can do to help them stay in their home as they age. This could be a phone-in service or expand to home visits. We believe there might be a market to provide oversight and look after bringing in various vendors to show their wares and to oversee installation if the client wants to proceed.
If I want to live in my current home as I age, what modifications could help me remain safe? (e.g., installing handrails, a ramp, emergency response systems, etc.)
How will I maintain my home if I need help? Are there services available in my community? Do I have the money to pay for the services if I need them?
Do I need to move to a more manageable home or consider a home without stairs?
What are my housing options if my current home no longer suits my needs? What will be the costs?
As I age, can I get to the services that I need and the activities that I enjoy?
Am I aware of my medical conditions that could impact my ability to drive?
Am I aware of the signs that suggest I may need to consider retiring from driving? Do I know where to go to test my driving ability?
If I am no longer able to drive, do I have access to reliable and affordable alternatives in my community?
Will the cost of alternative transportation be more or less than owning my own vehicle?
What support and services are available in my community to help me with daily activities such as shopping, cleaning, yard care or snow shoveling?
Where can I get help with bathing, grooming or other personal support?
How much will these services cost?
