Retirement success is all about smart, proactive planning and early action.

We’re living longer, but with a fraction of the family support our parents and grandparents enjoyed when Boomers were young. That makes for significantly bigger challenges and most are discovering it far too late in life to do anything about it. There are key tactics to put in play early, MUCH EARLIER than most realize.

We developed the Pillars of Home Based Longevity as a tool to help guide older adults along the retirement path of their dreams. Call it Aging in Place, Aging with Grace, Thriving or Home-Based Retirement, they’re all just labels. What matters is that you have a realistic plan that shields you from crises many face with aging.

What We Offer

Home retirement is our passion, and we have spent a lot of time getting the process down to a science. The solution we design is strictly based on the features you need both now and down the road.

Steps For Retiring Comfortably


Wealth preservation is the aspiration of everyone, but it’s a complex mine field in retirement years. While busy watching pennies, life has a habit of bowling us over and snatching our savings at unprecedented rates. Financial planners will sell you insurance, but the rest is up to you.


Several studies tie longevity, health and happiness to a strong community-based social lifestyle. Protecting your social interactions will get more challenging over time – we can show you how to maintain strong human interactions with family, friends and your community.


There are several proactive steps that will help maintain overall well-being and happiness, and put you on a path for a thriving lifestyle that your friends will envy. Whether you want to get fitter and healthier than you’ve been in years, or needing help planning a future care strategy, there are many options available to suit your needs.


The home plays a central role in supporting your retirement dream. We’ll develop a plan with you that offers an inviting and secure lifestyle for years to come. We’ll show you how to incorporate beautiful accessibility into natural, universal designs that pay for themselves in months. Your only regret will be that you didn’t call us sooner.

Personal Lift

You don’t have to move or give up the second floor of your home. Install a personal lift between the main and second floor for easy transfer for people, laundry and other home items. It’s typically the lowest cost options vs moving or relocating to the main floor. Unlike an elevator, these are typically installed in a couple days, for a fraction of the cost. We don’t sell these, but we’re happy to help you locate the right lift for you.

Personal Plan

There’s a lot more planning involved in successful Aging in Place than the items listed above, and you can’t afford to learn that you should have done something after the fact. Scott Fulton (owner) is the area expert in Aging in Place. An instructor at University of Delaware and local speaker, Scott will create a plan tailored to you, to help you achieve the sustainable lifestyle you’re looking forward to realizing.
