  • How Big an Age Wave?When the baby boomers start turning 65 in 2011, 10,000 people will turn 65 every day—and continue to do so for the next for 20 years. By 2030, almost one out of every five Americans—some 72 million people—will be 65 years or older. By 2050, the 65+ population is projected to be between 80 and 90 million, with those 85 and older close to 21 million. So what does this all have to do with Handyman Matters?Not only will there be many more senior Americans, but they’ll be living longer: individual life expectancy is increasing. Is your home ready to keep you safe so you can enjoy your g-grandkids grow up?

    • 5. Economics of staying at home: •Relocating to a typical assisted living facility can cost upwards of $40,000 per year, plus the cost of moving. •The cost to widen the bathroom door, add safety bars and a roll-in shower would typically cost about $6,000 to $9,000, but it’s a onetime expense. •The affordability of aging-in-place remodeling is enhanced by the fact that medically necessary changes (such as wider doorways or a roll-in shower) may be deductible on your taxes.
