Senior Friendly Home Renovations

That Make A Huge Difference

The need for age-friendly housing has increased dramatically over the last several years. As the population increases and people begin to live longer thanks to modern medicine, there will be over 923,000 seniors in the region by 2031. This means that there will be one in five persons over the age of 65 in the region and the need for age-friendly housing will increase exponentially. As more seniors choose to remain in their own homes longer, it's going to become more important than ever before to make some age-friendly home renovations for seniors. Most seniors just don't know where to start. This is where Heilman's Renovations can help out.

Home Renovations Promoting Aging In Place

A good general contractor will be able to specialize in age-friendly home renovations to ensure that seniors who wish to remain in their own homes are safe and can remain in their homes. They will have a lot of great options for renovations that will ensure that seniors won't injure themselves in their own homes. This can help seniors to remain independent which is really important to them.

The general contractor will start by creating a list of what needs to be done to ensure that seniors are safe in their own homes. They will install shelving that seniors can easily access from seated positions, they will install non-slip flooring in bathrooms. They will adjust the height of toilets and install grab bars to ensure safety. Ramps may need to be set up to enter the home and they'll adjust switch plates so that seniors can reach them easily.
