Aging in Place / August 25, 2023
Whether you have aging parents who live in Etobicoke or want to prepare for your senior year to remain in your home for as long as possible, aging in place and staying safe can present some challenges. Here at Handyman Connection, we provide home repairs for seniors, including the installation of safety items and many other services that can prevent accidents and provide aging Etobicoke residents peace of mind.
As you or other residents of your home age, certain safety issues can increase the risk of falls, trips or slips that can break bones and decrease mobility. Our handyman services provide a variety of services that can prevent these accidents, including:
Hiring a handyman in Etobicoke from Handyman Connection can help ensure the correct installation of these safety devices. While you may find some safety hardware in stores as do-it-yourself kits, the improper or incorrect installation of these items may cause seniors in your home serious injury. Professional installation can increase the life span of the safety hardware and prevent its failure.
One challenge you might face as you modify your home for aging in place is regular home maintenance. This includes maintaining your home’s electrical system, cleaning ductwork and other HVAC components, painting and flooring needs and carpentry needs. Yardwork, such as mowing the lawn and trimming trees, may require climbing, bending and prolonged standing.
Residential maintenance can become more difficult as you age, especially when it comes to jobs that require you to climb ladders or lift heavy household furniture. Our handymen can perform these jobs for you and reduce the risk of dangerous falls that could put your plans to age in place at risk.
When our handymen arrive at your home for maintenance services or to install new safety features that help you age in place, they understand the importance of answering any questions you may have. You may feel unsure about which services you require, but our handymen have both the experience and know-how to inspect your home and make suggestions about which might best suit your needs.
Our handymen can perform a walk-through of your home and note which tasks need attention right away. For example, if your home’s gutters need cleaning but your balance is not suited for climbing ladders, our handymen can resolve this issue to prevent water damage to your roof. They can also perform smaller indoor maintenance needs, such as fixing broken cabinets and pulls or changing the batteries in your smoke or carbon monoxide detectors.
At Handyman Connection, we understand the importance of aging in place and enjoying the comfort and safety of your own home for as long as possible. We offer not only an array of services from small jobs to more involved projects but also quality craftsmanship performed by licensed and insured individuals.
Our handymen build professional relationships based on trust and respect. This can provide you with peace of mind as they perform home repairs for seniors, especially if you have an aging parent who requires multiple or repeat services. We background check all our handymen to ensure quality of service and to protect you and your family.
Aging in place allows you or your senior parents to enjoy the golden years with independence and dignity, and handymen services can help. Contact us today or fill out our online form to find out more about our services and for further assistance.
