Home Repairs and Modifications

For seniors, maintaining an independent and safe living environment becomes increasingly important. Home modifications and repairs play a crucial role in enabling seniors to age in place gracefully. By addressing accessibility, comfort, and safety concerns, these modifications empower seniors to live independently, enhance their quality of life, and provide peace of mind for both seniors and their loved ones.


Home Repairs and Modifications Improve Accessibility

Home modifications can significantly improve accessibility for seniors with mobility limitations. Installing ramps, handrails, and grab bars in strategic locations within the home can prevent falls and make navigation easier. Widening doorways and hallways can accommodate mobility aids such as wheelchairs or walkers, allowing seniors to move freely without restrictions. Simple adjustments, like lever-style door handles and rocker light switches, provide added convenience for individuals with reduced dexterity. These modifications enable seniors to maintain their independence, move around the house easily, and minimize the risk of accidents.


Enhanced Safety

Home modifications and repairs focus on enhancing safety measures throughout the living space. Installing adequate lighting in hallways, staircases, and entrances helps seniors avoid tripping hazards and reduces the risk of falls. Non-slip flooring materials, such as textured tiles or carpeting, provide additional stability and prevent slipping accidents. Bathroom modifications, including walk-in showers with grab bars and shower benches, decrease the chances of falls in one of the most accident-prone areas of the home. Moreover, installing smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and fire extinguishers improves home safety. These modifications promote a secure and worry-free environment for seniors by addressing potential risks.


Increased Comfort and Convenience

Home modifications not only focus on safety but also prioritize comfort and convenience for seniors. Adjustable beds, lift chairs, and easy-to-reach storage solutions minimize physical strain and promote optimal comfort. Kitchen modifications, such as lowering countertops and installing pull-out shelves, allow seniors to carry out daily tasks more efficiently and with reduced effort. Climate control systems and energy-efficient upgrades improve temperature regulation, making the home more comfortable year-round. Additionally, home automation technologies enable seniors to easily control various aspects of their home, such as lighting, security, and temperature. By incorporating these modifications, seniors can enjoy a more comfortable and convenient living environment that supports their unique needs.

A difficult family decision left us needing moving help for a family member. The Amston team was totally wonderful! I would recommend them to anyone for moving help. They’re all just terrific: office and scheduling personnel, the actual moving team, and everything they did. – Claudia Seymour
