Aging in Place

Aging-in-Place Inspections

As time passes, more and more individuals are deciding to age-in-place in their homes rather than moving to expensive nursing homes or assisted living facilities. This allows senior citizens the chance to live comfortably and safely, all while not having to worry about the large price tags, restrictive visiting schedules, and the loss of freedom that comes with traditional senior living facilities – as well as a range of other benefits.

Sequence Property Inspections is InterNACHI® certified in offering Aging-in-Place home inspections. Our inspector, Fred, understands the unique mobility and safety needs of senior citizens and is dedicated to helping them live safely and independently in their homes. Fred has specialized training and experience in assessing potential risks and providing solutions to make your home a safe and comfortable living environment.

Some benefits of aging-in-place include:

  • More Comfortable – There truly is no place like home. Not only do nursing homes run the chance of being stuck with a roommate, but nursing homes do also not provide the familiar scenery and comfortability that comes with being in your home with all your things.

  • Peace of Mind – With so many nursing homes and facilities out there, it’s hard to know exactly who you may be working with. Aging-in-place can give you and your family the peace of mind needed that you’ll be in a safe, healthy, and happy place!

  • Independence – To many, nursing homes represent a loss of freedom and overall reduced quality of life. Staying in your home can give you the independence and self-determination you need, while still having the option to hire care or help at your discretion.

  • Costs Much Less – Nursing homes and other assisted living facilities are very expensive, ranging anywhere from $4,000 a month to more than $100,000 annually for full nursing care. And with a mortgage that is most likely paid off, it’s far more cost-effective to remain in the home and make any adjustments needed to ensure comfort and safety.


What Do We Look for During Our Aging-in-Place Inspections?

When you hire Sequence Property Inspections, Fred will look over the house from top to bottom to ensure accessibility, maneuverability, and overall safety for elderly residents.


Some of the things identified during an aging-in-place home inspection include:

  • Potential tripping hazards via cords, rugs, mats, or carpets;

  • Uneven, broken, or cracked walkways or driveways;

  • Assessment of indoor and outdoor lighting.

  • Emergency alert systems.

  • Needed height adjustments of appliances, cabinets, and counters throughout the home;

  • Width of doors, hallways, and other areas in the home.


Our home inspector, Fred, uses a comprehensive aging-in-place checklist to ensure we provide an in-depth report of potential safety hazards in the home. Once the inspection is completed, various recommendations that should be made by you or a contractor are discussed in a professional quality report.
