Laurie and Kevin have been a team since they married in 2004. In the early days of her career, Laurie would often come home after work and talk with Kevin about the frustrations and difficulty her patients faced when their life circumstances were abruptly changed due to illness, injury or disability. All too often, she found that her patients were unable to find competent or available contractors to modify their homes, leaving them without many options for a safe discharge home and return to their community. As time passed, Laurie and Kevin proceeded working in their respective industries while raising their four children, and continued to grow and be challenged in their careers emerging as leaders in their fields. Periodically, they would revisit their earlier conversations about the significant need that continued to remain for knowledgeable and experienced, reliable home modification contractors for people of all ages in their local community. Laurie and Kevin came to recognize that by combining their individual skill sets, they were in a unique position to be able to help fill that need. The opportunity to offer a "one stop shop" providing thorough assessment as well as professional, timely and affordable home modifications would enable members of their community to achieve increased accessibility and independence while safely aging in place in the homes they have lived in and cared for throughout the years. Most importantly, Laurie and Kevin wanted to offer ALL families peace of mind that their loved ones can live comfortably and confidently at HOME with their disability or changing mobility needs.
We offer a FREE home safety consultation conducted by an experienced therapy professional. The consultation usually takes place in under an hour. The process starts with a thorough interview of the client and any other caregivers in the home which helps to identify client and caregiver goals as well as any areas of specific concern. Next, we move on to a comprehensive walk through of the entire home, indoors and out, making note of any general safety or simple repair recommendations as well as taking measurements. The therapist will collaborate with our team of highly skilled carpenters and technicians to generate a variety of options for any areas of the home in which repairs or modifications may be appropriate. A summary of the home assessment will be provided to the client along with a detailed proposal for any recommendations made and/or specialty medical equipment suggested. Our goal is to offer personalized, custom solutions while keeping within your budget by giving our clients options. We strive to offer an "on demand" service, as we understand that time can be of the essence in sometimes rapidly changing healthcare situations. We make every effort to schedule any necessary and agreed upon modifications in a timely manner.
