Our specialists are ready to renovate and update your home to adapt to your limitations and needs. We want you to be able to live safely and efficiently. To achieve this goal, we can upgrade or add amenities to help you maneuver around your property. By installing functional bars and other equipment, we can help you regain full mobility.

The primary focus of our aging in place services is to prolong your autonomy and independence. Let us renovate your property and make everyday living more manageable today!

Increasing Accessibility & Stability

Our specialists can install convenient fixtures, extensions, and amenities to help you access all areas of your home. Fixtures we frequently install include:

  • Grab bars
  • Handrails
  • Comfort height toilets
  • Shower seats
  • Handheld shower faucets
  • Ramps and stairlifts
  • Door levers/pulls
  • Pull-out shelving
  • And much more

These fixtures will help with balance, mobility, and stability. Railings provide added support when navigating stairways. Stairlifts and ramps will help you move between levels without climbing. If you use a walker or wheelchair, these add-ons can be a lifesaver. Shower seats will help you avoid slipping on the wet floor. A properly elevated toilet set will make sitting down and standing up a less exhausting experience. Replacing door/drawer handles and knobs with pulls or levers can improve the accessibility of storage spaces.

Improving Visibility & Safety

As you age, you may find your eyesight gradually declining. Many elderly individuals also struggle with depth perception. Luckily, we have practical solutions. Our technicians can alter the colors of stairway risers, install task lighting in bathrooms and kitchens, and much more. Contrasting colors of fixtures, floors, and walls is another option that can boost visibility and aid mobility.

Our top concern is your safety. That is why we tailor our improvements to ensure your health and wellbeing. Other safety-related alterations we offer include:

  • Installing nonskid flooring
  • Moving electrical outlets and light switches
  • Adding smoke alarms with strobe lighting for the hearing impairedCertified Aging In Pace Specialist
  • Removing throw rugs and other tripping hazards
  • Adding anti-scalding valves on faucets

Unlike contractors who specialize in one task, our licensed, bonded, and insured technicians can do it all! With quality training, top-notch tools, and proven techniques, we can help you live comfortably in your own home!
