Live longer, safer and more comfortably in your home. Providing home adaptations (renovations) for seniors and those with mobility issues can be as simple as installing grab bars. More major modifications might include replacing a bathtub with a shower, installing a higher toilet, widening a doorway, or building a ramp. As Certified Aging-In-Place Specialists, we listen for each client’s unique needs and apply solutions to correct them. We also provide handyman services for typical small jobs needing to be done. We work closely with Occupational Therapists and welcome working with Veterans Affairs and BC Housing for grants. Call us today for a complimentary assessment.
