Downsizing Seniors & Aging in Place – Debi Carser Designs

Downsizing Seniors & Aging In Place

Approximately 10,000 baby boomers are retiring EVERY day.  The average life expectancy in North America is 81 years old!  Seniors are healthier and living longer than previous generations.

As we become an aging population, we need to make difficult decisions for ourselves or our loved ones.  Should we/they move into a retirement lifestyle or live at home with modifications to your/their home. At Add Value To Your Home, we can help you with either decision you make.

Aging In Place

As a Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) we will set up an appointment with you and go over your requirements and make recommendations as to how to modify your home to make sure that your home will allow you to live in it safely, independently and comfortably. We will walk through the rooms in your home, with your needs in mind analyze what modifications need to be done. After we come up with recommendations, and have your approval, we will oversee the management of getting those recommendations in place whether its grab bars for your shower & toilet area or designing a new shower to accommodate a wheel chair.


During the process, we will get to know you to help you decide what you want and need to take with you.  We will measure your current furniture and create a floor plan that will enable you to settle in quickly and live comfortably in your new space. 













Getting your home ready to move and sell is an overwhelming process
for most of us.  What to take?  What to give away?  How do you dispose of years of “stuff” that you accumulated over the years.  We can help you with every step of the way. We will work with you on a one-on-one basis to help you decide what to keep, what to sell or give away.  We can make arrangements to dispose of items that you don’t want or need through donating them, through consignment shops, and or estate and antique specialists.

Staging Your Home to Get You Top Dollar













90% of potential buyers look at photos online first to see if they want
to look at your home in person or not.  Therefore first impressions are critical to attract as many buyers possible to view your home.  We have been preparing & staging homes for over 10 years helping our clients make money beyond their expectations.

We will make recommendations of what your home needs to get top dollar and with your approval, we can oversee and painting or repairs that we recommend that your home needs.  We will help you declutter, pack up or donate belongings not needed for the sales presentation of your home.

We will then stage your home to make it stunning and desirable to potential buyers.  We can also arrange for professional cleaners to make your home sparkle.
