Home modifications for the Elderly
Modifying homes to make them safer and more accessible allows many elderly people to stay in their homes during their later years. For many seniors, living in their home is not only important to their emotional well-being, it's often more cost-effective than other housing options.
We at ABC Handyman Victoria put together a list of small modifications to make your home more comfortable and suitable for independent living. These changes are easy to implement, and they will improve the quality of your life at home.
