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. All of our work is performed by experienced craftsmen who walk you through the process every step of the way for a simple and seamless experience. Our goal is your complete satisfaction. If you or a senior loved one need handyman services for home maintenance or aging in place modifications, simply give our team a call or request a quote today.

While senior housing is advantageous in a number of ways, many seniors may be surprised to learn that their own home could become ideal for aging in place with a few minor renovations. At your local Handyman Connection in Vancouver, we offer a wide range of home repairs for seniors. We understand that every senior homeowner has unique needs and we aim to provide customized remodelling services that meet those needs precisely. Consider several day-to-day activities that may become easier after implementing a handful of updates.

Navigating Walkways

Some of the more common types of home repairs for seniors involve clearing pathways so homeowners can safely travel from room to room. Sometimes, all that is needed is a simple rearrangement of furniture, rugs, and electrical cords to minimize trip hazards. In other situations, homeowners may opt to remove ridges or dips across thresholds or to widen doorways. Another smart way to reduce the risk of falls in hallways, stairwells, and entryways is to add seating and rails. This way, seniors can sit down when putting on their shoes and stabilize themselves using grab bars. Stairlifts are another good option for owners of multi-level homes.

Preparing Meals

Another potential obstacle people must overcome to age in place involves the kitchen. Cooking often necessitates standing for long periods of time, accessing hard-to-reach supplies, and using various appliances. To simplify some of these tasks, seniors may wish to adjust the height of their countertop, add roll-out shelves, and even install motion-sensor faucets. Anti-slip flooring also comes in handy in case water is spilled on the kitchen floor.

Using the Bathroom

Bathrooms present numerous hazards to many seniors. For one thing, a wet shower floor may lead to a bad fall. To avoid this situation, homeowners can install anti-slip flooring and grab bars in showers. Shower seats and zero-threshold showers and tubs may also make bathing much easier. Many of the renovations that are helpful in kitchens may also be useful at the bathroom sink. Motion-sensor faucets and lights, for instance, simplify daily hygiene routines. There are even anti-scald devices that can prevent water from reaching dangerously high temperatures.

How We Can Help

At Handyman Connection, our goal is to help seniors feel confident about aging in place. For this reason, we aim to keep our clients fully informed and involved throughout the renovation process so they receive their desired results exactly. Because our team only includes highly experienced and knowledgeable craftsmen, you can rest assured that the projects will be completed the right way the first time around.
