“Enhancing mobility and safety through home modifications.”

Welcome to Restore Independence!

Greater independence and safety in the home you love

Most of us hope to continue living independently and confidently in the home and neighborhood we are familiar with. Fortunately, simple home modifications can often allow us to remain in our current home if changes in our mobility, vision or hearing create the need for a more supportive environment.

Restore Independence, a division of Living Homes Inc., has been helping homeowners create beautiful solutions to improve accessibility and independence within their homes.

We would love to help you, too!

Experts…at your service

Founder Lisa Cole, PMP, a general contractor who is internationally certified in project management, brings more than 11 years of experience in construction projects and more than five years of experience in modifying homes for older adults and individuals who have mobility, vision or hearing challenges.

Careful, creative solutions

Our evaluation of your home environment will help us understand where modifications would improve your ability to manage your daily activities better. Based on your feedback and our observation of your home and routines, we might suggest a single change or a variety of changes. Our goal is to encourage aging in place: helping you live with increased safety, greater ease and confidence in your home.

Some of the solutions we frequently implement include:

  • Improving shower accessibility by installing roll-in showers or ramps into your shower
  • Reducing fall risk
  • Elevating toilets
  • Installing grab bars
  • Installing secure shower bench
  • Adding a second handrail to stairways
  • Adding threshold ramps at the entrance and throughout the home
  • Install non-skid surfaces for ramps
  • Widening doorways
  • Installing wood or aluminum ramps
  • Ensuring that laundry, pet care, and other common activities are easier and safer
  • Replacing doorknobs with easy-to-use levers style door knobs
  • Please see the How We Help page for more examples of how we can help you

All home modifications are done with strict adherence to ADA Certification needs and requirements and local building codes.

When custom results are needed to allow for aging in place, you can count on our care and expertise to identify an effective solution.
