HandyPro Richardson Home Modification Handyman Supports Growing Trend for Aging in Place

An AARP Survey revealed that 80 percent of baby boomers age 45 and older and 90 percent of those over 65 want to stay in their current home as long as possible


Richardson, TX – According to the Richardson home modification handyman, surveys indicate people age 50 and up plan to live out their days in their own comfortable home rather than moving to an assisted care facility or being placed in a nursing home. The baby boomer generation is demanding home modification service to make their homes safer and easier to live in because they know that the cost of assisted living is skyrocketing.

An AARP Survey released in 2010 revealed that 80 percent of baby boomers age 45 and older and 90 percent of those over 65 want to stay in their current home as long as possible. The Richardson handyman expects this Aging in Place trend to remain strong, therefore, increasing the demand for senior home modification.

Aaron Abbott, owner of HandyPro Handyman Service, is proud to satisfy the demand for senior home modification service.
