Hiring a responsible and qualified contractor is a big concern for all homeowners, but especially for seniors. We’ve all read stories about unscrupulous contractors and senior homeowner scams. That’s why a pre-screened referral from a Homeowner Referral Network (HRN) is a great solution for seniors who need to find contractors to help them age in place.
Home modifications for seniors can range from something as simple as adding a grab bar near a toilet or in a shower or building entry ramps to widening hallways or creating a downstairs master bedroom for seniors who can no longer use the stairs.
Whatever the job, large or small, senior homeowners and their caregivers need to be sure that they are hiring a reputable contractor with the necessary licensing and insurance credentials.
And, for homeowners who are too busy to do the proper research, an HRN is a great resource!
