Renovations Can Help Homeowners Age in Place

Dave Wilkes

If you are like most Canadians, you want to age in your own home. A 2020 survey conducted by the National Institute on Ageing (NIA) at Toronto Metropolitan University, with TELUS Health, found that 91 per cent of Canadians of all ages, and almost 100 per cent of Canadians 65 years of age and older, report that they plan on supporting themselves to live safely and independently in their own home as long as possible.

Is your house or condo ready to enable aging in place? There are many modifications, large and small, that you can make to your home so that it meets your changing needs as you age. Your best bet is to start by having a conversation with a renovator, who will be able to guide you. I encourage you to choose a RenoMark renovator. These renovation professionals are required to abide by the RenoMark Code of Conduct and provide a detailed written contract, offer a minimum of one-year warranty on all work and carry all required licences and permits, as well as a minimum of $2 million in liability insurance.
