Aging-in-Place Remodeling in the Greater Schaumburg area
With less strength and flexibility than before, simple tasks can become more difficult in our golden years. Reaching for an item in an overhead cabinet can become challenging and even dangerous, and we can begin to lose our sense of confidence when we begin to need assistance for what used to be easier tasks.
Fortunately, aging-in-place remodeling can help older homeowners regain lost confidence and restore the ability to live independently in our own homes. DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen™ is a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) contractor, providing a safe place for people with special needs through knowledgeable planning in the field of ‘universal design’ — a process of inventorying your needs and capabilities before beginning space design.
Accessible Bathrooms – Walk-In Bathtubs, Curbless Showers and More
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about two-thirds of home-related accidents take place in the bathroom. In 2008 alone, over 234,000 Americans were treated for injuries stemming mostly from slips and falls, with injury severity increasing with age. Accessible bathrooms provide increased safety and comfort in the smallest room of your home.

- Pull-down shelving systems that allow more access to upper cabinets
