In our business we see just about everything in home trends. Our new favorite is seeing older home owners staying in their homes longer after retirement. And we say “kudos!” After spending years in your home, you no doubt feel comfortable and safe. And why wouldn’t you want to enjoy that? Being the savvy home maintenance people we are we have some suggestions for older owners and those who know and love them.
When routine becomes unmanageable
As home-owners grow older there may be some regular maintenance tasks that become unmanageable. There is no shame in asking for help with things that present unwanted stress or dangerous environments. Your Home Concierge provides seasonal, monthly and routine service for home owners of all types. Some of these tasks – gutter maintenance, downspout service, window cleaning (for example) can be especially hazardous for anyone, not just senior citizens. You don’t have to do it by yourself. We have a team of vetted, professional and friendly vendors that would be happy to assist.
And the things you just don’t WANT to do anymore.
Likely you’ve worked hard for many years on the upkeep of your home. It doesn’t have to be a luxury to say “no, thank you” to tasks that you simply don’t want to do anymore. Your Home Concierge offers packages that can also tackle the jobs in your home that leave you with a sense of dread. We offer handyman service with all our packages to keep your home in tip-top shape and keep your to-do list short.
In with the new
Staying up to date is critical for all homeowners and maybe even more so with older homeowners. There could be modifications and updates to your home that you need to keep it functioning and usable for you. Let us help. Sometimes the best tool you can have is a trusted partner as you seek to keep your home functioning and comfortable. Your Home Concierge is also committed to staying current with technology and developments that relate to your home’s maintenance. This includes regular testing for radon, security and alert systems and major systems in your home.
We see lots of retirees who want to take advantage of their freedom and enjoy some travel. Whether across the country or around the globe, if your home will need looking after while you travel, we can help. Your Home Concierge can help you prep your home for being away and for your return. And you can also have us schedule any preventative service that your home might need while you’re away.
A perfect holiday gift for everyone
Your Home Concierge offers packages as gifts and gift certificates also. This can make a perfect gift for a friend, family member or loved one who is a senior home owner. This is not only a thoughtful and useful gift but gives everyone piece of mind. We’d love to talk about your needs and put together a unique package to suit you and your family’s needs. We’re here to help homeowners of all kinds, especially if it means helping home owners to spend more years in the homes they love.
