<span>Sunday Morning Tip for Dec 02:</span> Aging In Place? How to Retire in Style
  • Opening Intro -

    When age kicks in, you might want to consider some home renovations that will accommodate your needs.


When people retire in their own home, as opposed to a nursing home, they often just stay with what they have and don’t take advantage of the freedom and benefits that their own land can bring. Just because you don’t live in a designated nursing facility, doesn’t mean you can’t retire in comfort. Check out these tips for how to get started on making your home a luxurious place to spend the rest of your life.

Hot Tubs and Saunas

There are few people who need the relief on their joints, muscles, and bones like those who have worked hard to earn their retirement. The therapeutic benefits of soaking in hot water have long been proven, and soaking out on your back porch to watch the sunset is a great way to end a long day. The hot water not only eases pain, but it improves circulation in the body and accelerates the healing process, keeping you healthier as well as more comfortable.

Luxurious Patio Furniture

Consider getting in touch with a luxury outdoor furniture consultant designer who can create the right pieces and setup for your outdoor sitting and viewing areas. Vitamin D is an essential vitamin that is only obtained through exposure to the sun, and getting furniture that is designed especially for your comfort and ease of use will make spending time outside the highlight of your day. Being closer to the plants and fresh air of the yard will also improve your mood and prevent the feeling of being cooped up indoors, which many retirees suffer from.

Elevators and Other Assistance Devices

While sharing a home with others means that accommodations may be inconvenient for them, this is your house. Don’t let the styles of younger generations dictate your ability access all of the amenities of your home; get railing installed in the bathroom to help you stand and sit.

Get an elevator so your joints don’t have to deal with those stairs every time you want to go to a different floor. Install smart home devices so you can control the lighting, locks, timers, and other areas of your home without having to get up. Not only does this make your house more personalized to you and your needs, but it will increase your independence and potentially eliminate the need for a caregiver.



Everyone deserves access to the beauties of nature. Whether you enjoy gardening, or you just want to sit back and enjoy a view that is full of life and green when you go outside, getting landscaping done is well worth the effort for those who don’t have the time and energy to travel out to the park or undeveloped areas whenever they want to get in touch with nature.

Colorful flowers, birds in tree branches, and even just a well-kept lawn will reap major benefits for your mental health. Don’t let your walls be the confines of your world; open up your yard to the possibilities that nature brings.  

No one wants to retire in a place that doesn’t meet their needs. You have worked hard, saved for retirement, and now, you deserve the best. Having an amazing retirement depends greatly on the comfort that your environment can provide. Don’t settle for something less than what you need. Put your golden years at the top of your priority list with the improvements above and start living the way you have always wanted to.
