To further assist, we’ve gathered a list of the most commonly asked questions about aging in place, but don’t hesitate to reach out if you don’t see your specific question listed below.

What are the most common safety problems among older adults?

Mobility and balance issues can cause some of the most common safety concerns among older adults. Consider what injuries home safety solutions could help prevent. Modifications like lowering shelves, installing grab bars, or swapping out slippery floors for something non-slip will make your home safer.

Why is home safety important for older adults?

Home safety is essential for older adults who want to remain home. As we grow older, we often experience mobility, balance, or health issues. Aging in place is much easier when the house is prepared for these upcoming concerns or challenges. With the correct modifications, it's possible to make their space safer and more comfortable.

What does a typical home safety modification cost?

The price of a typical home safety modification varies depending on the size and complexity of the project. Something more labor-intensive, like widening doorways, may cost a few thousand dollars, whereas something on a lower scale, such as installing grab bars in a kitchen or bathroom, will cost much less. 

The best way to determine the costs of your desired project is to schedule an appointment with your local Mr. Handyman.
