HandyPro helps local resident stay in her home
By Keith Osterman
Vicky, from Preston, Md., was in and out of the hospital two months ago, only to find that she was diagnosed with ALS and had become wheelchair bound. She was now facing a question that so many are faced with today. Should she live in an assisted living community or nursing home, or can she modify her house so that she can continue living safely at home?
Her question was soon answered by Keith Osterman, president of HandyPro. Within two days of returning from the hospital, Oysterman’s company installed a wheelchair ramp for Vicky, allowing her to enter and exit her home safely.
According to the US Census Bureau, there are 75 million Americans who are aging in place and who may be asking the same questions. With the current trend, it is estimated that over 106 million Americans will have this concern by 2015.
Keith Osterman started HandyPro Handyman Service that specializes in home modifications because he saw the need of modifying or transforming homes, allowing the elderly to stay home instead of choosing assisted living or nursing home care. “Not only does it make financial sense,” Osterman says, “but I understand that most people would prefer to age (with the convenience of independence and dignity) while in their home.”
His company is focused on providing individuals and families the convenience of complete accessibility and mobility within their homes.
HandyPro provides many accessibility products including •elevators, •automatic door openers, •ceiling lifts, •safety bars, •bathroom transfer systems, •personal lifts, •stair lifts, •specialized tubs and showers and more.
