An Interview with HandyPro Hilliard Home Modification Specialist Provides Safety Tips for Seniors

Baby Boomers are entering their golden years and many have special needs that must be addressed in order for them to live safely and independently in their own homes

Hilliard OH – Tom Mills, owner of HandyPro Handyman Services was recently interviewed and he provided some important safety information for aging and disabled homeowners. With baby boomers entering their golden years the demand for home modification has increased. Most of this generation prefers to remain in their home rather than moving to a managed care facility.

The local handyman suggests several areas to consider when assessing the home of an aging loved one. Access to the home is one of the first things he looks at. As a Certified Aging in Place Specialist, Tom Mills can install wheelchair ramps and porch lifts or hand railings with strong fasteners to support the weight of the resident.

Another area of concern is the bathroom where most accidents occur. The home modification specialist can renovate the bathroom, install strong grab bars, walk-in tub and shower and adjust the sink height and plumbing to accommodate aging and physically challenged homeowners. Mills also mentioned removing small throw rugs that can cause a trip and fall hazard.

The handyman ( suggests people visit their loved ones and look for signs that indicate a need for home modification to improve safety, accessibility and mobility in the home. For people who have difficulty standing up from a seated position the handyman can install an Allen Pole which allows them to use their arm and back muscles for increased mobility.
