Enhancing Accessibility: Wendy and Don’s Home Renovation for Aging in Place with Eagleview Construction


Wendy and Don have cherished their home in the Victoria Park neighbourhood since 1979. As the years passed, they faced the challenge many homeowners encounter: adapting their beloved home to meet their evolving needs as they age. They wanted to ensure they could continue enjoying their home and neighbourhood without the limitations caused by conventional home layouts that aren't designed for reduced mobility.

Identifying the Need for Change

The realization came when they noticed that their home lacked essential features like a ground-floor bathroom, and the steps and doorways could potentially become obstacles. They saw friends and family struggle with similar issues and decided proactive changes were needed to make their home more accessible.

Homeowner's Needs

Their primary goal was to remodel their home to be completely accessible, incorporating features that would allow them to age in place comfortably. This included wider doorways, deletion of all steps, and the addition of necessary amenities on the ground floor to accommodate potential future mobility needs.

Wendy and Don sought multiple quotes for their renovation project, but they found Eagleview Construction’s quote to be the most reasonable when considering all of their needs, making the decision to choose Eagleview an easy one.
