Aging in Place

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.

Here at Handyman Connection, we understand many Kelowna residents would prefer to continue to live at home instead of moving into senior housing, nursing home or another long-term care facility. After all, not only does aging in place allow you to stay in your home, but it may also enhance your quality of life. Still, as you age, your existing house may be unsafe or simply not meet your needs. Handyman Connections in Kelowna offers home repairs for seniors. We can also remodel your home or install accommodations to help you enjoy it for years to come. 

Remove slip, trip and fall hazards

Seniors have a greater chance of suffering a serious injury in a fall than their younger relatives. If you have an existing injury or chronic illness, you may even be at increased risk. Either way, it is a good idea to remove slip, trip and fall hazards from your home. The following tips may keep you safe as you age in place:
  • Inspect thresholds: The transition in flooring between rooms may be uneven. Therefore, you should inspect all thresholds to ensure they are secure and undamaged. If your home is missing thresholds, you may want to install them. 
  • Remove rugs: While rugs add some coziness to any home, they may also cause you to lose your footing. Consequently, you should remove rugs, especially if they have a tendency to bunch or roll. 
  • Eliminate tripping dangers: Electrical cords, coffee tables, ottomans, pet beds and other items may cause you to trip. Eliminating these dangers or securing them may keep you from falling. 
  • Add accessible seating: It is possible to fall when trying to sit in a chair or stand up from one. Accordingly, you should add accessible seating, perhaps including a mechanical chair.
  • Install grab bars: You may need some help getting around in the bathroom. Installing grab bars in the shower, next to the toilet and by the sink gives you sturdy grips to use when you need them. 
  • Customize your home's exterior: As you age, you may have trouble maneuvering through your garden, accessing your garage or climbing steps. Installing a ramp, repairing cracked walkways and upgrading landscaping may keep you safe. 

Keep Your Home in Tip-Top Shape

Just like you, your house is getting older every day. To ensure you can live in your home for as long as possible, you must keep it in tip-top shape. To keep damage from sneaking up on you, schedule an inspection of the following:
  • The roof and walls
  • The foundation
  • The alarm system
  • The HVAC system
  • Wiring and plumbing 
  • Windows and doors
