Aging In Place / January 25, 2021
If you or your loved one are experiencing aging in place in your home of many years, there are important updates and measures to be taken to a home for the safety of the seniors living there. This blog will explain the process of aging in place and how your home can be readied to help you or your loved one feel more comfortable.
Aging in place is a very transitional time and is a chapter of life that is bound to come at one point. Items in your home such as the stairs, hard floors, fixtures in the bathroom, and more can all become a risk to a senior who is going about their daily life. With the help of a local handyman, you can have your home updated to remove and prevent these risks such as falls. The first step to finding a handyman is to schedule an estimate with multiple companies and to meet with them to discuss your needs and budget. It is important to find professionals who are there for you and ready to create the services you need and will benefit from.
Updating physical obstacles in your home or hazards can range from several examples such as installing grab bars in bathrooms or any entry ways with steps, shower seat or walk-in tub installation, anti-scald device installation, motion-sensor faucets, roll-out shelving for accessibility, motion-sensor lighting, stairlift installation, door camera or caregiver cameras, and more. If you need to make your home more accessible, doorways can be widened for walkers and wheelchair use, ramps can be installed, and more.
These updates in you or your senior’s home can help to make the aging in place transition easier and more comfortable. Be sure to tell your handymen exactly what you need to get the services perfect for you.
