Are you Licensed?

We are licensed and insured – we are Certified Residential Contractors, which means that we are licensed throughout the State of Tennessee and Georgia to remodel or build houses.  Contact Dan today at 423-508-7868 for your free home assessment.

What does it cost to remodel?

It depends on several factors.  For even large whole house remodels, choosing to renovate can save thousands off just one year’s stay in an assisted living community.  Unfortunately, most elderly people, in not knowing where to turn, usually decide that moving is their only option.  At Independent Lifestyle Solutions we always look at the feasibility of your needs and weigh in against moving or building new.  It’s always worth the time to compare.

Can you provide financing?

What is done in a Home Assessment?

Our experienced team will cover each room in your home as well as the exterior that will show any safety, or home accessibility shortcomings.  We look for common issues like; secure flooring, adequate lighting, accessibility to the home (and through the home) and other common safety elements.  The result is a report that can be used by the family to plan for the future needs in the home.

The best time to do an assessment and to plan for your future is while you are still healthy.  Studies show that the earlier the planning is done the more time you have to get used to the changes, and most importantly have a safer home that will help prevent accidents from occurring.

Does the Home Assessment cost anything?

No! There is no cost for the standard Home Assessment; however, more elaborate plans and assessments are available that do require a consultation fee which is typically credited against the cost of modifications or remodeling.  Contact us today for your free home assessment.

My parent is having a hard time getting into and out of her bathtub. What can be done to help?

There are several things that can be done to make bathing much safer and more comfortable.  First option would be to add a shower seat with adjustable legs.  Make sure that there are proper grab bars in the correct locations.  Another lower cost option is for us to install a “Safeway Step” to the tub to lower the step over height.  They are also available with a swinging door to allow continue  use of the current tub.  Lastly if the budget allows the tub can be removed and replaced with a walk-in tub with water therapy.  If tub bathing is not important, a curb-less shower can be installed in place of the tub with adjustable shower arms and multiple therapeutic jets.
