Each challenge is considered while checking the design, placement of furniture, stairs, interior and exterior lighting and pathways. We write an assessment for modifications stating the order of importance because some are put off making adjustments due to financial concerns, health, age and ability some modifications may not be necessary immediately. Vision and appropriate lighting is all important particularly as we age.
