I Am a Person Living with a DisabilityWe Can Provide Solutions for Accessible Living at Home.
We design and build beautiful and fully accessible residences.
We do so by bringing aesthetically pleasing solutions to each of the spaces and rooms that require modification to then meet your specific mobility requirements without feeling clinical or sterile.
By liaising with you and your family, along with your health care professionals, we ensure you move into beautiful surroundings within your personal residence so you can live with autonomy and in dignity to the highest degree possible.
Our team is fully vetted, bonded, licensed, insured, with police background checks. Along with our founder’s 35 year history as a leader in compassionate delivery of award-winning renovations, our founder and his team have also been able to achieve stellar customer reviews from our extensive customer base.
Custom Solutions for Accessible Living at Home
No matter what your situation or ability, your home should always feel warm, welcoming, and safe – and you shouldn’t have to choose between a beautiful design and fully accessible spaces. Whether you live in Willow Park in the south, Springbank in the west, Bearspaw in the north or anywhere in between, at MyLifetimeHome we believe in finding that perfect balance for you. The result we’re after? Fully accessible homes that do not feel clinical, cold, institutional in any way, all while giving you autonomy and dignity.
What is an Accessible Home?
While this term is used in many different contexts, at its core it is a legally meaningful phrase used to describe specialized modifications in a domestic space. Accessible homes and accessible housing take many forms, depending on the needs of the individuals involved.
Accessible construction in homes often includes features like larger doorways, modified stairways, lowered (or raised) cabinetry, weight-bearing fixtures, and enhanced lighting in certain areas (e.g., showers). Many furnishings, fixtures, and decorations are created to accommodate your individual needs and wants, which are detailed and recorded during the planning process. Just as you or your loved one are your own unique person, everyone deserves a unique solution that affords the best possible lifestyle, complete with a welcoming aesthetic that truly makes your home comfortable, yet design savvy as well.
Home Accessibility Renovations in Calgary
Are you interested in updating your existing home with accessibility features, or building a new one to both match your vision and make you smile as you navigate through each gorgeous room? (And did you know that you might qualify for a federal tax credit if you do? (NOTE: In Alberta, if you or your family member is over 18 years of age, $14,940 on line 58440 is your DTC/Disability Tax Credit.) Our thorough and detailed process has five steps, each of which are important to fully enjoy your new or renovated home. Those five steps are:
1. Consultation and Assessment
Your home is where you spent much of your time, and it is likely to be the most valuable investment you ever make. We want to make sure yours is just the way you want it, so you can live a full and satisfying life there.
The initial consultation – where we provide an overview of design solutions and budget estimates – is free of charge. For more detailed services at this step, such as consulting with an occupational therapist, proposal development, or designer services, costs may vary by scope.
While this is usually the most difficult part of the process, we’ve found that there are several options for financing that are often overlooked. More information about these different options can be found on our “Five-Step Process” page, which gives details on some solutions from banks, brokerages, payment plans, and so on. Our newest finance partner link is https://www.financeit.io/home-renovation/
3. Design and Accessible Selections
There are many variables at this stage – the scope of work, rebuilding vs. renovation, planning for future needs as well as current needs that depend on specific mobility requirements, and so on. This stage is where we engage in our “Design Discovery” process, which has been created to build both your wish list and your must-have list, all the while making your home unique to your design style.
4. Renovations, Modifications, or Custom Build Process
Whether you choose to stay at home during the renovations, relocate elsewhere, or wait for your custom new home to be complete, we are a single point of contact that offers many associated services to make your experience more enjoyable. Long before the modifications begin, we will work with you to protect important items and areas and lay out expectations for the weeks and months ahead. As always, our team will be ready to discuss your project process, and listen to concerns every step of the way. We also provide a cloud-based customer portal that allows you to access every single detail of your project and project calendar from anywhere in the world, as long as you have Wi-Fi.
4. Move-in Celebration
A great result is worthy of recognition – so our tradition is to bring together everyone who made your new home a reality and hold a “turnover celebration”. This is your chance to officially move in and fully experience your ‘new’ home, designed specifically and fully customized just for you. It is a wonderful and emotional event that you will remember for years to come. As you see your new home unveiled for the first time, we will also conduct a final walkthrough to ensure all details you envisioned are completed to your satisfaction, and review warranty information for your records.
