Home modifications and home maintenance are crucial for older Australians to live safely and independently in their own homes.
These adaptations can help prevent accidents and injuries, which become more common as individuals age. Simple changes like installing handrails, non-slip flooring, and better lighting can significantly reduce the risk of falls and other mishaps.
Well-maintained homes ensure that essential systems like plumbing, heating, and electricity are functioning properly, preventing discomfort and potential health hazards. These adjustments enable seniors to age in place, preserving their sense of autonomy and familiarity, which can have a positive impact on their overall well-being and mental health.
