Accessibility & Functionality
Owning a house is a goal that many people set for themselves. Filling that house with memories of life, love and laughter over the years is what then makes that house a home. But as we age, we start to need different things from our home. Sometimes those changes are due to a temporary or permanent disability, and other times it’s just a result of aging. Whatever the reason, we understand the frustration and disappointment that comes with being unable to function around your home the way you use to.
Struggles such as getting upstairs or through doorways that are too narrow are certainly emotionally devastating to anyone. The good news is that you can remain in the comfort of your home with a few accessibility and functionality modifications. Our professionals at Handyworkx will be able to access and recommend changes necessary to help with daily living. Once you are happy with the suggestions and planning, our highly qualified professionals make the modifications needed to improve accessibility for you and give you the comfort of maintaining your independent lifestyle at home.
