We make recommendations that consider resale value and are cost-conscious given the timeline you expect to stay in your home.
Aging in Place successfully requires all these to work together:
- Home Modification
- Physical Fitness
- Lifestyle Mentoring
- Remote Monitoring

Post-Fall Virtual Consultation
"Evolving Homes was a tremendous resource when my Step father experienced a fall in their home. The Virtual Consultation included the whole family and she provided specific guidance and an assessment of the situation with kind and thoughtful suggestions. This process empowered my Mother to take action to keep my Step father safe in his home environment. Carol considered all aspects of the situation including personalities, cost and time.
I work with the senior community in my line of business and would highly recommend Evolving Homes' services to clients looking to be proactive and for folks experiencing a crisis."

"Carol Chiang is brilliant at helping others determine beautiful, tasteful and affordable solutions to making one's home safe and accessible.
Her whole philosophy of empowering people to know what they can do and "positive aging" is so refreshing.
We had a consult with Carol relative to our new home construction. We plan to be there for over a decade and want to be prepared as we age.
Carol has always emphasized that it is far cheaper to put in what you might need than to have to retrofit a home after it's been built.
She was painstakingly thorough and helped us examine everything in the builder's model, from the difficult doorknob, to the proper placement of grab bars, to the width of the kitchen and placement of microwave, to the weakness of the shower surround, to the lip from the master bedroom to the bathroom.
She also showed us how the slider door to the patio was an accident waiting to happen and gave us great ideas to overcome that.
I was so impressed with her knowledge, her ingenuity and creativity. Carol is a true professional and she has made such a difference in how we are planning our new home. We highly recommend Carol and Evolving Homes."
