"Kyla and Sean - the owners of BuildAble - are exceptional professionals and people. I recommended BuildAble to my grandparents because they needed help to be able to stay in their home longer. They met with my grandparents, and helped make decisions about the modifications that would help them most. BuildAble installed a stairlift, a bathtub cut-out, and a number of grab bars in their washrooms. My grandparents are thrilled with the modifications to their home - but it is Kyla and Sean that they can’t stop talking about. They talk about them more like grandchildren than hired professionals, and they continue to go back to them anytime they think of something new they might want to change.  I’m so glad my grandparents now have these two in their resource network and seriously can’t recommend them enough!

Mobility can be a challenge.
Your home shouldn't be.

Preventing Falls at Home

The Bad News:
Falls are the leading cause of injury-related hospitalizations for Canadian seniors - including 95% of all hip fractures. 1/3 of these seniors are admitted to a Long Term Care (LTC) Facility after one of these falls - with numbers on the rise.  *PHAC, Full Report here.

The Good News:

Most falls are completely preventable!

Taking steps to be proactive about making a safe environment can make a BIG difference. Even simple modifications like having a few grab bars installed can prevent hospitalizations and early LTC admissions.

We recommend targeting your bathroom & any steps/entryways first.

“I felt thoroughly comfortable having the BuildAble team guide my bathroom renovation. They went far beyond what another company would do in order to give us a beautiful and safe bathroom. They showed a personal interest. They were always happy… we could hear them singing as they worked! It was a pleasure to have them working here.”​
