Senior-Friendly Home Renovations a Must Amid Growing Aging Population

The latest poll from the CIBC showed that 42 percent of Canadian homeowners are planning on renovating their homes, and the majority of them are mainly concerned about giving their interiors a facelift through repainting and flooring projects. However, they may be overlooking another important consideration when it comes to considering a renovation depending on their stage in life and that of their family members that visit their home; making their home senior-friendly.

By the year 2036, people aged 65 and over are expected to more than double, reaching a population of 10.4 million. With this number of aging baby boomers in Canada, it is important for homeowners to integrate senior-friendly choices in their home renovations, especially for homeowners who plan on staying in their homes for a very long time.
