A Home Business That Helps Seniors

As America ages, the need for businesses that serve the needs of seniors grows.

My contractor referral business has helped local homeowners find reliable home improvement contractors for more than 20 years. But, as the years pass, it’s hard to ignore the fact that many of my older clients need to make modifications to their homes if they want to continue to live safely.

Some home modification projects are as simple as adding a grab bar near a toilet or in a shower or as extensive as creating a downstairs master bedroom for seniors who can no longer use the stairs.

While hiring a responsible contractor is a big concern for all homeowners, it is especially important for seniors.

An Aging-in-Place and Homeowner Referral Network (HRN) business is a great way to help older homeowners find contractors they can trust. It can be done part-time or full-time and it’s an ideal job in retirement, for stay-at-home parents or for anyone looking for a viable home based business.
