After a stroke, Mary Ann engaged A Better Nest to provide information about ways to increase her safety and independence at home. There is often more than one solution to a problem and costs can vary widely. A Better Nest provided unbiased information so that Mary Ann could make the best decisions relative to her situation. The Company also facilitated the process of getting the work done.
"After having the stroke in July 2012, and my husband passing away suddenly in July 2013, I knew I would not be able to stay in the home we had built together without making some changes, and my children and I agreed that some of the changes would have to be drastic. Having two levels, the main floor and a full basement, access was a major issue for both outside and inside. The installation of a "vertical platform lift" was the greatest addition and well worth the expense. It addressed both access issues to a major degree.
As I have very limited use of my right arm and hand, replacing my old wooden windows and storm doors with ones that I can easily manipulate with one hand was wonderful. (I do like fresh air on occasion, not just the air I have to pay for.) These are only a few of the items I had to address to bring my home to the standards that will allow me to continue to live here safely and hopefully for the remainder of my lifetime.
I am so grateful to A Better Nest for the wonderful guidance through all aspects of this process. I could not have done it without them!" Mary Ann S.
