Simplify Your Life


Growing older brings with it the question of whether or not one’s self or a loved one will be able to continue living in their own home. Things that were barely noticed in years past can become significant challenges in old age: stairs, narrow doorways, routine household maintenance, even using the restroom.

Fortunately, one doesn't have to only choose between moving to assisted living or living in an unsafe home. White & Katzman Property Services offers a number of home modifications for aging-in-place that can help Connecticut residents stay in their homes for as long as they wish. If you’re looking for the best in age-in-place services in Connecticut, look no further than White & Katzman.

What can W&K do for your next age in place project?


Age in Place Ramps and Railings

Stairs are a significant obstacle for many people with knee or hip problems, or those who rely on mobility devices to get around. WKPS installs interior and exterior ramps to make getting into and around the home more manageable. Railings and handrails can also be installed in hallways and other areas to provide stability for those with mobility issues. Depending on each individual home and the needs of its occupants, other renovations may be needed or desired.


Age in Place Bathroom Remodeling

The bathroom can be one of the most dangerous rooms in the house, especially for seniors. The majority of falls that occur in the house happen in the bathroom. But steps can be taken to mitigate this threat. Curbless showers, bathroom benches, and grab bars can make entering, exiting, and using the shower easier. Heightened toilets and vanities can be installed to reduce the strain of sitting, standing, and stooping. Specialty flooring can be installed to reduce the risk of slipping.


Age in Place Kitchen Remodeling

Cooking and eating are crucial for independent living, but many standard kitchens can be difficult to navigate. Simple renovations can alleviate these difficulties. Lowered countertops, pull-out cabinetry, lever or touchless faucets, wall-mounted ovens and microwaves, and more can all make using and navigating the kitchen much more manageable.
