Most of today's homes were not designed or built to accommodate aging adults or anyone with limited mobility, balance and strength. In particular, bathrooms, for example, are common places for slips and falls to happen. In order to keep older adults out of harm's way and help them stay in their current homes as long as they possibly can, it’s vital to make smart bathroom updates for aging adults.
At HP Mechanical we are bathroom experts and updating bathrooms in order to accommodate seniors is something we encounter with our customers all over Sonoma County with an emphasis on Santa Rosa and Windsor, CA all the time.

You can prevent these dangers by remodeling your bathroom with specialized features and plumbing fixtures. And don’t worry—you won’t have to compromise on style. Visit our local showroom partners to select from a wide range of stylish brands and fixtures.
