How ShelfGenie Can Help Seniors

By 2050, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates the population of people aged 65+ will nearly double to approximately 84 million. As the population ages, there is massive demand for aging-in-place solutions that let people stay in their existing homes while modifying them for ease of access. At ShelfGenie, we manufacture our own line of shelving solutions to improve storage and functionality in the kitchen, pantry, and bathroom.Kitchen SolutionsSince every home's main activities center around the kitchen, it's important to consider safety and convenience when redesigning or updating the space for seniors. In addition to keeping things organized and creating more space, glide-out shelving can make storage more accessible. It allows you view everything at a glance without having to shuffle items around, and puts less strain on your back and knees. Seniors can use glide-out shelving for dishes, pots and pans, cleaning supplies, and more. It's also a great solution for storing heavier appliances such as blenders, slow cookers, and toasters.Pantry SolutionsThe pantry can easily become a catch-all for small appliances, dry goods, paper products, and food items. Whether the pantry is in a kitchen cabinet, or has its own designated space, organization is key for usability and ease of access. With custom glide-outs, items can be categorized or zoned so they won't be hidden or lost anymore. Viewing items quickly will assist seniors with food preparation and grocery shopping.Bathroom SolutionsFrom toiletries and medication, to bath towels and cleaning products, there should be a neat accessible place for every item in the bathroom. Glide-out shelving in the linen closet or cabinets maximizes storage space and functionality. To utilize the space under the sink, glide-outs can be customized to fit around pipes. Seniors will be able to access whatever they need without bending over and reaching in to the back of the cabinets.Our Glide-Out shelving can take a space that’s being wasted and maximize its potential by adding easily accessible tiers for better organizing. Whether someone has arthritis, has trouble seeing, or uses a walking aid or wheelchair, our shelving solutions can make a huge difference in their quality of life.
