Staying in your own home well into their retirement is a top priority for many senior citizens in Carroll County. Aging-in-place is a term used when senior citizens wish to remain in their own home safely and independently, regardless of age or ability level. This allows seniors to stay in a familiar environment and enjoy the community, routines, and people they have spent a lifetime with.
Living comfortably and independently often requires that changes be made to your home. Whether this includes changes to a home to make it more accessible or the addition of a completely new in-law suite, Robin Ford Building and Remodeling, Inc., is committed to helping Carroll County seniors stay in their homes.

Aging-In-Place – One Client’s Story
Over twenty years ago, Robin and his team built a beautiful custom home for Diana and her husband. As the years went by, the children moved out and had families of their own. When their daughter, son-in-law and two small grandchildren came to live with them, it wasn’t long before Diana had the idea to design an in-law suite. This would allow everyone in the household privacy and independence, allowing her daughter, son-in-law and their children the main section of the house. Robin worked with Diana to help her create a beautiful and functional new space for the next phase of their lives. See full gallery here.
