Aging in Place

One of the greatest concerns people have as they grow older is that they may have to leave their home. Most American seniors desire to stay in their homes for the rest of their lives, and whether for physical, geographic, or monetary reasons, much of the aging population will someday have to face this issue. Oftentimes, this means leaving behind a comfortable living space, family, a familiar community and many memories. In addition, a certain amount of control is lost when a person gives up their home. This "control" provides the underpinning to our feelings of dignity, quality of life and independence. One's home is a strong element in their sense of security.

As health care costs rise and the economy slumps, the aging population must decide why and how they want to spend their hard-earned dollars. According to the MetLife Market Survey of Nursing Homes & Assisted Living Costs (October 2010), the national average for a private room in a nursing home is $83,585 annually ($6,965 per month) and for a private room in an assisted living center is $39,516 annually ($3,293 per month). Washington has some of the highest nursing home and assisted living costs in the nation, nearly 20% more than the figures list previously. Even the national average is on the rise, nearly a 5% increase since 2009 alone. Careful consideration must be taken when deciding to give up your home and pay for these institutions or to "age in place".

Americans of all ages value their ability to live independently. But without a plan for aging in place, it can be hard to stay in control of your life. It can be difficult to plan that far ahead because many people don't like to think about the inevitability of aging. Too much optimism or denial can lead to poor planning. Contact Gentry Custom Remodel  for your free in-home design consultation and prepare yourself for a safe, accessible future.

We specialize in incorporating elegant and seamless designs/modifications to new or existing structures to allow anyone, healthy, impaired or disabled to remain in their home or business. We are dedicated to creating affordable, effective solutions for anyone wishing to create a safe, accessible living environment. This allows individuals the independance to stay in their home rather than move to an institutional facility.

We offer:

free in-home assessment and safety consultation

complete building and installation services (includes plumbing, electrical, etc.)

industry specific product knowledge

direct coordination between our health care-professionals and your trusted health-care providers.


Simply put, an in-home assessment from the professionals at Gentry Custom will help you or your loved one better understand the options from a realistic point of view. Not everyone can stay in their homes. Sometimes the level of care needed for an individual forces them into a facility where that care is provided. However, with some forethought and careful preparation, many individuals and families can plan safe and worry-free futures for years to come. Let an in-home assessment from Gentry Custom  help start that process.

Mobility/accessibility issues we look for:

Getting in and out

Moving through the house

Use of bedroom and bathroom

Eating and meal preparation


Household management

Enjoying the outdoors

Gentry Custom can handle all your design, building, and product needs. We provide a full range of services for all types of jobs, from the simple installation of grab bars to entire home remodeling or new construction. Don't just trust anyone with these important home decisions. Trust the professionals at Gentry Custom with the experience, and industry specific knowledge to help you stay where you want to be.
