Hello! I’m Brandon
Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist
When I was 10, my grandfather was diagnosed with Alzheimer disease. He was a father figure to me and a very smart man. Grandpa was an electrical engineer that built satellites for Aerospace Corporation.
It was always a mystery to me how someone so smart could essentially lose his mind at a relatively young age. I watched my grandmother struggle taking care of him as his physical and mental state would diminish over time.
I would go to their house after school every day until my parents would get off work. I would watch him for short periods of time while my grandma would run errands and get stuff done around the house. This was probably the first exposure I had with aging in place as we tried our hardest to “baby proof” the house for an adult.
This was the early nineties and there wasn’t really any support then. I truly believe he had a longer life being able to stay at home and not in a facility.
After my grandfather passed, I saw a need at my grandmother’s house, especially since she lives alone, to install grab bars. I put them in the bathroom, shower and entry from garage to kitchen. I also installed hand railing for front door entry way and rear sliding door to the backyard.
We replaced her lights with LED not just for energy efficiency but also for convenience. It makes it less frequent to change which means less time on a ladder or step stool. She tells me all the time how secure she feels being able to move around the house freely.
I became a licensed general contractor in 2009 specializing in automatic gates and access controls. I also do small residential remodels and repairs. I have found that most of my senior clients just don’t know who to call.
While I am at their house performing work, I usually get, “While you’re here would you mind…”. This is why I have started focusing primarily on Aging-in-Place home safety assessments and modifications. It’s not only business but personal as well.
