Tailored by Plymouth Place is proof!
What is Tailored by Plymouth Place?
Tailored by Plymouth Place is our exciting new endeavor that combines the best-in class luxury senior living for active adults that we’re known for with a suite of state-of-the-art home automation offerings to provide you the perfect smart home for seniors!
We’re proud to offer these residential upgrades in partnership with Silver Age Homes, a Certified Aging in Place (CAPS) architectural, design and construction management firm.
Silver Age Homes supports active and independent living by designing and building beautiful and functional spaces that allow people the opportunity to age in place, on their terms. We were honored and thrilled to combine our expertise and experience with the team at Silver Age, which includes Certified Aging in Place Specialists, award winning architects and designers, construction managers, and healthcare professionals. Each was just as focused as we are on creating an excellent home environment for our residents through our Tailored by Plymouth Place offerings. These optional senior smart home upgrades are available to improve the functionality and aesthetics of every room in your home.
We invite you to reimagine your residence, with optional features that enhance your lifestyle, comfort and convenience. By purposefully investing in the right enhancements and customizations, you can not only make your home yours and maintain your independence — but also enjoy greater comfort, safety and energy efficiency!
What is a smart home for seniors?
You may have heard the terms “smart home” or even “senior smart home,” and wondered “what do these terms even mean?”
For starters, a senior smart home is not something straight out of science fiction, like Star Trek or The Jetsons.
It is also not a costly and inconvenient, floor-to-ceiling home improvement project that alters the personality and functionality of your home.
Finally, it’s not a bunch of so-called “upgrades” that only manage to make doing simple tasks around your home more challenging and confusing (the kind you have to call us — or your grandkids — every time you have a question or to show you how to use it.)
Far from it.
Tailored by Plymouth Place, a senior smart home enhances your home by incorporating automated and/or pre-programmable features that make your day-to-day lifestyle more comfortable, convenient, safe, and energy efficient.
Ever lost something under your kitchen counters? Who hasn’t, right? Instead of scrounging around on your hands and knees, spot it in seconds with toe-kick and undercabinet lighting, which illuminate those hard-to-spot places.
Ever stumbled into a dark room fumbling for the light switch, only to stub your toe instead? Spare yourself from the embarrassment (and give your big toe a break) with smart lighting solutions that let you control your lights remotely. Put another way, if you’ve ever walked through your home and thought, “gee, it sure would be convenient if someone created _____,” a senior smart home does just that — and so much more!
But don’t just take our word for it…see our senior smart home in action!
