Tips to Keep Your Home Safe for All

November 2019
Happy Thanksgiving! 
We were extremely excited to have been awarded the 2019 Silver Prism Award for the installation of an all glass elevator project at Union Wharf in Boston.  We teamed up with Oasis Specialty Glass and Apex Carpentry to complete this installation.  Check out the link below in the newsletter to see more pictures.

For those that have been to our Center recently know that we are busy renovating to complete the 'Accessibility Living Suite!' It's an exciting time for us as we work with Cardi's, Rhode Island Kitchen & Bath and Wickford Applicance to finalize the kitchen and suite.  Next is a working elevator and plans are in place as we start this project.  Please excuse the 'mess' as we undergo these renovations!

One thing to consider is to have a safety assessment done by Home Healthsmith.  We can help you determine where the fall risks are in the home and help you prepare the home for the upcoming winter season.

We will be closed on Thursday, November 28th and Friday, November 29th so that our employee's may spend time with their families.  We are still available for service related calls. 

If you are interested in learning more about the various types of accessibility products, please give us a call to schedule a presentation or stop by our facility at 207 High Point Ave., Unit 2 in Portsmouth, RI.

We are here to help!

Did you know that falls are the leading cause of injury-related hospitalizations for the elderly?

Close to 1 in 3 individuals aged 65 or over fall every year

The goal of fall prevention month is to draw attention to and create awareness of the magnitude in which falls affect us all directly or indirectly.  Read more here...

Why we do what we do...

"I love my platform lift. It has made my life a lot more manageable. I have less stress because I don't have to worry about struggling to get up the stairs into my house. I also don't have to worry about tripping and falling on the stairs.

Thank you Bill and Linda"
