"When my mother was my age, she had already been living in a nursing home for many years. I did not want that same scenario for myself. Now in my 85th year of life, I hired Jannette and Alicia to modify my home to address my current limitations and possible future ones, so I could live independently in my home, that I love, for the rest of my days.
They came in like sleuths, identifying everything that could put my physical wellbeing at risk. When they were finished with their evaluation, not only did I receive an education on how to become more cautious and take care of myself but now I had a written detailed plan, easy to implement, to modify my home so it would support my physical safety and well-being.
I found Jannette and Alicia to be a caring team concerned about families thinking they had no other choice than to move their loved ones into an assisted living facility for their safety and their own peace of mind. Modifying my home was the best decision I could have made, and I am so grateful that my family will never have to make that choice for me."
We can help you age in place!
