Aging well at home requires a living situation in which you can manage your physical environment, take care of the daily necessities of life, and have quality interactions with friends and loved ones. Befitting was conceived to meet this holistic point of view.
Our service approach is derived from the lessons found in the field of Environmental Psychology, a scientific area of research that focuses on the interaction between people and their environment. Our “people” focus is on adults curious about what issues may lay ahead for themselves and their friends and family, elderly needing assistance with activities of daily life, the frail, and all the professionals and supportive care providers who assist them. Our “environment” focus is on the built-environment, that is the structures in which people live, along with the co-location of other structures they interact with, the interiors of these buildings, including how spaces relate to each other, the equipment, appliances, automation, all the design elements, like color, furnishings, and lighting.
By viewing our customers concerns and their environment as a system, we can better identify, resolve and support your desire to age well at home.
