 Tips to Keep Your Home Safe for All

October 2013



I am pleased to personally welcome you to the October issue of our monthly e-newsletter, the Safe Home Journal. We bring you news on the latest home safety products and services.

  Book Cover

This month I am adding a new category; books, as I just finished reading a terrific one I want to tell you about. Authored by Janet Simpson-Benvenuti, it is  titled "Don't Give Up On Me." This book details Janet's years of experiences and struggles supporting her parents as they aged and eventually passed on. As you turn the pages it's hard not to laugh and/or cry. Many will identify with the issues detailed throughout. It is so well written and so relevant that you won't be able to put this book down. I certainly couldn't!


Anyone dealing with caring for an aging parent will find many tips for coping with the process that will make it easier on everyone involved. I urge you to read this book, you won't be sorry. Obtain your copy directly at Janet's web site, or at All proceeds are donated to organizations such as Alzheimer's and Dementia agencies.


Here's to aging well!

Owner, President

How Home Healthsmith Helped Me 
Bill With Van
Bill Getting Ready To Get To Work On Stairlift
by Rusty Sergeant


After an automobile accident left me paralyzed from the waist down in 1978, I knew my life would change.  Having been an active skier, sailor and tennis player, I had to grapple with a new set of challenges.


I enjoyed some success that allowed me to own accessible homes within which I lived a normal life where the difficulties of my disability were minimized.


In 2011 I was faced with three strikes: a year long hospitalization and rehab, a recession that brought my construction activity to a halt and the breakage of the stair lift to my basement office.


I couldn't find anybody knowledgeable about repairing my old lift until I mentioned it to my old sailing companion, Robie Pierce. Turns out he had been working with Bill Bohmbach on developing marketing strategies for Home Healthsmith.


Bill was not only was familiar with the lift and repaired it, but he explained the maintenance work needed that would allow me to enjoy it for many years to come.  Needless to say, being able to use my office again has made a big improvement in my quality of life.
