Aging in Place Remodeling in Ottawa

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.

At Handyman Connection, we understand that seniors in Ottawa often face difficult decisions when it comes to choosing between remaining in their own house and moving to a different living situation. While many people desire to stay in the comfort of their home, living on your own may raise some safety concerns. Our team provides a long list of home improvement services that aim to make your home as safe and accessible as possible. Home repairs for seniors often address one of two main needs: routine maintenance and various types of remodelling.

Regular Maintenance

Keeping up a home often requires completing a number of chores monthly or annually. Because many of these tasks involve climbing a ladder or crawling into other hard-to-reach spaces, some seniors may require assistance with these jobs. There are many types of maintenance services that home improvement specialists can take care of:
  • Light Bulb replacement
  • Air filter replacement
  • Water leak repair
  • Roof and foundation inspection
  • Smoke and carbon monoxide battery replacement
  • Door handle, lock and hinge repair
While these may seem like minor chores, consistently keeping up with them may prevent more serious and costly issues down the road.


In addition to routine maintenance tasks, your home may need certain modifications to make it easier to carry out your day-to-day activities. Handymen can tackle a multitude of remodelling projects, both big and small. Consider a few changes you could make to your home to reduce the risk of falls and other injuries:
  • Add ramps or flatten thresholds to make rooms more accessible.
  • Invest in non-slip flooring, shower benches, and grab rails to prevent slipping in the bathroom.
  • Rearrange furniture, rugs, and electrical cords to open up clear walkways.
  • Install new light fixtures to improve visibility in hallways and other dimly lit places.
Many of these projects don't require changing any major structural features of your home. This means that you can add useful safety features without exceeding your budget or committing to a long construction period.
