Met My Daughter's Needs

"My daughter is handicapped and had trouble getting around our two-story house. Jim worked with us to create a safe and usable space that met my daughter’s special needs. He thought of potential risks that we had not even considered. His creativity to each and every issue was very much appreciated."

Regularly Helping Our Neighbors

"After a recent surgery I was having trouble getting in and out of the shower. Jim helped us re-design our master bath and guest room bath to accommodate not only my needs but my guests that are aging as well. I posted his information at our clubhouse (we live in a 55+ community) and I always see his truck regularly helping our neighbors."

Most often the remodels will focus on opportunities to:

  • Minimize the risk of falls by installing handrails on stairways, grab bars in bathrooms, hard surface flooring versus carpet, nonslip tape or fastener to carpets;
  • Alleviate dexterity or mobility challenges by installing lever door handles, toggle or rocker light switches throughout the home and reconfiguring kitchen appliances and cabinets with mechanisms to raise and lower drawers or shelving for easier access;
  • Provide enhanced lighting for entryways, stairwells, hallways, or other dark areas as well as installing task-based lighting in specific areas of the home such as the kitchen;
  • Reducing risks for burns by replacing gas cook tops with induction heating and adding limiters on water heaters;
  • Opening up floor plans to provide for wider hallways and doorways and adding ramps to accommodate wheelchairs or walkers as well as modifying the bathroom and kitchen counters for wheelchair accessibility; and
  • Installing technology to automate home maintenance or to remotely control systems or monitor the home (a wonderful peace-of-mind option for children worried about their parents’ independent living situation).​

About one third of the elderly population over the age of 65 falls each year. Falls account for 40% of nursing home admissions, and 40% of those admitted do not return to independent living.*
