Planning Ahead

You may be considering finances and travel as you plan for retirement, but have you spent time planning for your home as well? Whether your plans are to remain in your current home or to downsize, there are improvements that can be made to improve your safety, accessibility, and comfort. Navigating a home may be easy today, but as you age things can become more difficult. Planning for the future means peace of mind. If you have thought about remodeling to update a kitchen or bath, or just need new paint and carpet, a home assessment is a great investment. Why not include your future needs now and save the expense later? At SideDoor Design Studio we will create a plan that will make the future easier and enjoyable for you, family and friends. Our design will include improved accessibility, increased usability, and maintain your independence to have a great quality of life. SideDoor will guide you to create a plan customized for your needs – call us today to get started.

Living with Chronic Conditions

Many people today are living with chronic or progressive conditions that may slowly erode mobility and the ability to live independently.

SideDoor Design Studio will work with you, alongside a Home Health Care Professional, to assess your specific needs and create a plan that we will use to adapt your home to meet those changing needs. Our vision is to keep people comfortable in their homes for as long as possible. This can reduce costs of care and provide a better quality of life.



Responding to Trauma

  •      Assistance with bathing or using the restroom
  •      Assistance getting in and out of bed

SideDoor will work with your Home Health Care Professional to provide the products to assist a loved one, as well as manage the process of installation.
