Stay in Your Home, Today & Tomorrow!

Making your home work better for you throughout the greater Seattle area

It is a fact of life, change happens. We’ve found that moving out of your home is not the only answer to changing needs and like to say, “change your home not your address.” We have developed the Stay in Your Home program to address these changes. Often just a few minor adaptations make a home much safer and more accessible.

Several of the Project Developers at Chermak are certified by the National Association of Home Builders (CAPS). Our comprehensive Stay in Your Home program is a primary focus for our company. That is how seriously we are about making sure families have homes that are safe and accessible. Contact us today to talk to one of our certified aging in place specialists.

Good planning improves accessibility, prevents falls and keeps individuals in their familiar environments longer. We believe that independence is of the utmost importance to people these days. At Chermak, specialized design services are customized to meet the needs of each client.

Our Stay in Your Home program offers a wide variety of services that are tailored to meet your individual needs, but the projects still have to be pretty!

We have won national awards for this approach. Call us today, at 425.776.1367 for your FREE home evaluation.

A curbless shower provides easy access for those who are wheelchair bound or just can’t step up into a tub anymore.

Widening doorways throughout the home provides easier access for a wheelchair. 

Wheelchair ramps can be not only functional but beautiful. The handrail mounted LED solar lights make this ramp attractive and safe at night.

A low curb shower can be a good alternative to curbless.
