Home Accessibility Northern VA / D.C. / Maryland metro area
At Live In Place, our passion is to assist our clients and their families in achieving their highest level of independence possible by improving mobility, comfort, and safety in their own homes. We have served thousands of families since 2007, and we are trusted and recommended by medical professionals in Northern Virginia and the Maryland/Washington D.C. metro area.
The founders established and designed Live In Place to offer complete home mobility and accessibility solution. They recognized a huge gap in serving the needs of seniors in the Northern Virginia/Washington D.C. metro area which, if filled, could enable them to live independently at home for the rest of their lives – no need to move to assisted living or a nursing home.
But in order to live at home safely and effectively, the founders of Live In Place knew that modification services had to be approached in the right way. So, they drew upon their professional medical and therapeutic expertise and experience and designed a one-of-a-kind methodology that both clients and trusted senior advisors have relied upon with success for many years.
Many of our clients have progressive illnesses or traumatic injuries. We work with every client and their families to quickly identify and understand their unique challenges and recommend solution options.
We believe that expertise and education matter. This is why the team at Live In Place has extensive experience and industry-recognized certifications and licensing in Aging-in-Place, occupational therapy, home remodeling, and home services.
