Setting the Stage LLC, is on a mission to modify homes so that people with compromised abilities — either from aging issues or because of a disability — can “Age in Place” and “Live in Place,” staying comfortably in the home they love.
During my 35+ year career, I learned everything I possibly could about construction. I worked with large national developers to renovate buildings to turn them into condos, and I worked with high-end residential project managers.
Renovating homes turned into complete home-management projects. Providing homeowners with basic and preventative work through my other company, North Jersey Home Maintenance Group.
And as some of my clients began to have issues — some were aging and having difficulty navigating stairs and showers; younger people had life-changing situations, and spouses fell ill and needed handicapped modifications to their homes. I found my passion, helping my clients to stay in the home that they love. Making these modifications allows them to do this.
Often, there is a battle between adult children hoping their parents will move to a facility where it would be safer, and the parents who do not want to leave their home.
They turn to me for help.
And I get it. As someone with an aging parent myself, I understand the challenges adult children face when they get pushback about making modifications to a family home. My own obstinate mother refuses to wear her medical alert bracelet, and there was nothing I could do to change her mind, except make some of the necessary modifications.
Your aging parents may be no different. I offer help to those who want to ensure that their parents have every possible safeguard in place as they age in their own homes.SettingtheStageBCPC35
