House Doctors opens applications for free home accessibility ramps


House Doctors franchisees nationwide are collaborating to extend a helping hand to those in need by crafting accessibility ramps that allow for easier home access.
 
Elderly individuals or those with disabilities are invited to apply by submitting a video or written piece that creatively expresses their need. Families or friends may also nominate loved ones by the application deadline, which is at the end of December.
 
“There’s no place like home,” says Jim Hunter, House Doctors’ owner and CEO. “We love our community, and this is a simple way for us to help a local family that is in need of some time and craftsmanship.”
 
The Milford-based company specializes in the beautification of homes through its handyman services and repairs but says it’s the well-being of those living within the parameters of a home that are of prime importance. 

“Building these ramps will allow us to create a safer, more accessible home for those folks who may just need a little help,” Hunter says. “What is more beautiful than being able to safely get in and out of your own home?”
 
Applicants will be notified in early 2016 if selected for home repairs.
