Interior Home Maintenance
If it involves keeping the interior of a home safe and sound, we will do it. Changing locks, fixing doors, light plumbing and electrical, changing filters, maintaining windows, bathroom and kitchen caulking, checking smoke detectors, checking attic and basement for water and moisture penetration, testing sump pumps, installing shower handles, painting. You get the idea...if it's under the roof, we maintain it or fix it.
Does Mom need her seasonal decorations moved from the crawl space to the first floor? Move the Victrola to another room? Rearrange furniture to create a safer space...or just look better? Crawl in the attic to see "what that noise is"? Done and done!! These are the "little" things that so many people have no viable way of doing without disturbing others, so they simply do not happen. Now Mom can decide what needs done...and when!
Exterior Home and Property Maintenance
Same story for the exterior. If it needs done, we will do it. Light trim repair, painting, window trim caulking, etc. We will also work on small landscape and yard work: trimming low branches and bushes, improving grade around the foundation, shoveling snow...even weeding a garden. Mom can decide what is important based on the season.
We have created an On-Demand program where Mom can call us with any tech issue that has her stumped! Computer virus, installing new software, updating her Facebook page, transferring digital images to family, cell phone use, downloading or using apps...and many more issues can be resolved with our included services. If it gets too advanced we can recommend a certified and insured data tech to visit Mom's home for additional fees.
Large Project Advocacy
This can become the single greatest value that we bring to Mom. Something large will need fixed or replaced and will go beyond our scope of services: New roof, HVAC unit, foundation integrity issues etc. When this time comes....nobody steps foot in Mom's house until we have completely vetted them, reviewed their credentials, verified their insurance, blueprints, plans AND pricing. If all that looks good.....then they can get to work!
No computer skills are needed for Mom to fully engage with the intuitive touch interface. The large touchscreen provides Mom with social communications, medication prompts, reminders, instructions and web based entertainment. Optional environmental sensors, activity sensors and digital medical devices can be added to the system as needed. These devices can be used to notify designated family member by text, phone or email if wellness readings fall out of range.
Our monthly handyman services will cover an ongoing list of 60 seasonal items AND cover random needs and "to-do" lists as they arise, both inside and outside. But larger issues will come up between scheduled visits...and when they do, our clients will have access to our pre-vetted Contractor partners who have given us a volume discount for our clients. We receive ZERO financial incentives or "kickbacks" from these contractors. Mom is free to use any contractor in the area and we will overlay our Project Advocacy services onto any new contractor at no additional fee.
