Where do I make the deductions for house expenses, my wife and I being +70 years old?

Unfortunately, there isn’t any way to deduct most household expenses. However, there are various credits and rebates available for home renovation expenses. You may also be able to get credit for an expense if you had a prescription or if a doctor said you needed it ex: if you installed bars to help you get into the shower.

Here are 11 of the most common credits and benefits for seniors from the CRA: https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/news/newsroom/tax-tips/tax-tips-2017/seniors-enjoy-your-gold...
