About Us

Your Home Is The Perfect Place For You.

Stay Home Instead originated from the desire for independence. As you get older, being in the comfort of your own home becomes vitally important. Family photos, memories and heirlooms become treasures you cannot leave behind. Plus, there are so many benefits to aging in a place where you’re comfortable. For example, daily routines go uninterrupted, along with the familiarity of your surroundings. Additionally, you are near the neighbors and friends you’ve known for years.

At Stay Home Instead, our goal is to create mobility remodeling solutions allowing seniors to stay in their home and keep their independence.

Designing Independent Living Environments with Seniors’ Safety in Mind

Stay Home Instead’s team of expert contractors gives you the freedom of choice while improving the safety, mobility and functionality of your home. Basically, you want to stay in your home and we make your dream a reality. From large jobs, like complete bathroom remodels, to small jobs like, installing shower grab bars, we are here to keep you safe in the home you love.

From stairlift installations to barrier-free showers to illuminated light switches, Stay Home Instead can complete any job from start to finish ensuring you or your parents’ safety. Not only does our team focus on proper installation on all of our jobs, but we tailor the design to your needs and requests.
