Tips to Keep Your Home Safe for All

May 2015



We started this month hosting an In-Service for the Visiting Nurse Services of Newport and Bristol Counties.  With over thirty in attendance,  Kevin Gaumond, Service Technician of Home Healthsmith, gave an overview of stairlifts, ramps, grab bars as well as the new Titan Swivel Chair.  Kevin Nadeau of Prism Medical presented to another group on sit to stands, ceiling lift and slings.  The event was an affirmation as we continue to finalize plans for The Center for Adaptive Living at High Point that we are on the right track.   


Please give us a call or schedule an appointment to visit us and learn more about the various types of equipment that are available to help keep individuals safe in their home.

Project of the Month: 
Why we do what we do...

A ramp job for a client in Portsmouth...on 5/5, we received a call that the client's husband was coming home from rehab facility on 5/10. The assessment was done that same day.  The client came the following day with a deposit and signed the ramp rental agreement.  The ramp was installed on 5/8 - in time for the husband to come home and get inside the house easily!


Home Elevator Modernization Project

Occasionally, Home Healthsmith is asked to undertake an unusual and very challenging project and that's what we encountered recently in Newport.  An existing client contacted us to inquire as to the possibility of replacing an existing, four story, obsolete and unreliable elevator in their home.  

What made this project a challenge was working around high end finishes on the walls, floors and entrance doors.  Throw in removing and reinstalling the existing furniture grade cab and well, see what I mean.  Lucky for us, the home owner was away from their home leaving us free to do what was necessary to protect the property.  To make a long involved project short, WE DID IT!  Not a scratch on the floor, not a dent in the molding and best of all; a satisfied home owner.  

Please feel free to contact us in regards to your unique project, we love a challenge.

"Kevin was extremely helpful in his observation of the tub set up.  He was here to install a grab bar on the wall and instead offered the Stander Security Pole and Curved Grab Bar.  In a non-standard bath, his quick judgement and expertise provided us a much safer method.  He was supposed to install a more expensive setup but saw that the alternative was better for my husband.  We greatly appreciate his knowledge and professional judgement!  10 Stars!! Many thanks"  T. Pagnozzi - Coventry
