The AARP reports that 90% of North Americans over 65 intend to stay in their current residence for at least 5-10 years.
But their home was never designed for 'aging-in-place'.

Problem #1

Declining mobility can be a vicious cycle

We call it The Shrinking House...

Take a close look at the home of a senior.

Staircases have one handrail where they should have two. Shorter flights may have no railings at all. There is no support in the halls or bedrooms.

Nothing has changed since the home was built, yet it's as if barriers have been erected over time.

The home has shrunk, from two floors to one floor to only a few rooms. And with each passing month of reduced mobility the situation becomes more acute.

 

Problem #2

Aging in place can be dangerous

Deaths from accidental falls have doubled among seniors over the past decade.

Falls are the #1 cause of injury among seniors, responsible for almost 3 million ER visits and more than 25,000 deaths in Canada and the USA annually.

More than 75% of these falls occur in and around the home.

 

The Solution

Handrails prevent falls and improve mobility.

Handrails in hallways and on both sides of stairs promote whole-home mobility and dramatically reduce the incidence of falls.

Handrails are on every falls-prevention and aging-in-place checklist. They're required by law in all public places in most of North America. And yet true falls prevention handrails are almost never found in the home. Not even in the homes of the aging or the mobility-impaired where they are needed the most. Until now.
