Aging In Place In Wylie, Texas - Making a Home More Accessible with Remodel Modifications

Over many years of remodeling, we’ve found that many clients are concerned about being able to “live in one's own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level”, commonly defined as Aging In Place. This is also a consideration for family members that have regular visits from Parents or Grandparents that may stay with them for short-term or extended timeframes.


Live Safely In Your Wylie Home

Falling in the home is one of the leading causes of injuries. Common features in an everyday household, such as a lack of support in the shower or bathroom, inadequate railings on the stairs, or obstructed doorways are common hazards.

Quality material is often the only focus when making remodel decisions. At VIP Services, we know that there are companies that can provide similar quality, but owners often find the remodel experience to be disappointing.

Having the right team in place, who follow written processes, to ensure that all details are covered, while slowing down to plan correctly prior to starting is our primary focus. We know that delivering a quality product is very important, but we also know that the process and experience you have while getting there is just as important.
