Home Improvement Projects to Protect Your Aging Parents

by VersaTube Marketing on November 21, 2019

As parents age, it becomes our duty to care for them as they have cared for us. While they may not ask for help it becomes our duty to predict their needs. There are some simple home improvement projects you can undertake to protect your aging parents. 

Covered Walkways

As we get older our sense of balance deteriorates and we become more prone to falling on uneven or slick surfaces. Keep your parent’s outdoor walkways dry and prevent falls with a VersaTube covered walkway. VersaTube offers a variety of walkway sizes both with and without premade roofs. These walkways can be mounted to the ground, or for additional stability for the elderly, onto a paved foundation. 

Home Insulation

If your parents live somewhere with extreme high or low temperatures, insulation is a must. Many older folks are likely to run their heat higher in the winter to avoid cold weather. Hot weather, however, can be just as dangerous. Keeping their homes at a comfortable temperature can be expensive depending where they live if their homes are not properly insulated. Taking the time to blow in insulation to their homes can save them money and keep them safe. 

Adequate Lighting

Falling is a huge risk for seniors. Making sure your parents have good outdoor and indoor lighting can help prevent falls. A well-lit yard is also safer from a security point of view. Install floodlights at the front and back of your parent’s home and use LED bulbs to safe money and energy. 

Insulated Buildings

VersaTube buildings are a perfect addition for those who want a workspace outside their home. Our buildings offer options for insulated walls, windows, and a variety of door styles, making it easier for your mother or father to use in colder months or heavy rains and storms. 

If your parents have an outdoor hobby you want to make that hobby doable for them for as long as possible. Gardening, woodworking, even pottery take up a great deal of space. Provide them with a safe, comfortable space to enjoy their favorite hobby, protected from the elements. 

Our buildings also provide additional storage for things your parents no longer use. A rickety or aging shed may put your parents’ items at risk for damage, but providing them with a sturdy alternative can save them time, money, and grief. 

Protecting your Aging Parents

There are many things you can do for your parents to make the transition into their sunset years easier. The most valuable thing you can provide, however, is support. Reach out and let them know that they are important to you, and offer to help them however you can. We here at VersaTube embrace all stages of life and want to help you help those around you.
