Home Improvement / May 1, 2018
This week, Handyman Connection of Jeffersonville owner Matthew Lenfert joined WGTK’s The Answer to talk about how to renovate your home to safely and comfortably age in place. The goal of aging in place is to help seniors live in the residence of their choice, for as long as they are able, while maintaining and/or improving quality of life.
For example, one of the most common areas that need to be remodeled for aging in place is the bathroom. The ideal situation is to have plenty of clear space to accommodate someone in a wheelchair around the toilet, bathtub or shower stalls.
Having the toilet at the proper height can make an incredible difference in the comfort and safety of your bathroom.
Handyman Connection recognizes that many senior homeowners would prefer to age in place rather than move to senior housing. To help those homeowners reach their goal, Handyman Connection offers a variety of installation and remodeling services that can help people remain in their own homes as they age, and do so safely, independently, and comfortably. Services include:
Grab bar installation
Fixed or portable accessibility ramp installation
Shower seat installation
Walk-in tub installation
Zero-threshold/walk-in shower installation
Anti-scald device installation
Motion-sensor faucet installation
