Andover Equity Builders Assembles A Team To Help An Elderly Disabled Man Stay Safe In His Home.

Andover Equity Builders identified an elderly, disabled man who needed help remodeling his bathroom. We assembled a great team of Vendors and Subcontractors who donated their time and materials to help us with this project. Together this team was able to redesign the bathroom to ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards. Many thanks go to:

“We were concerned that my Grandfather would have to be placed in a nursing home because he was unable to safely use the bathroom. We were unable to make the necessary changes. Andover Equity Builders came to the rescue! They redesigned the room and made it ADA compliant. Their team was great to work with and best of all PaPa got to stay in our home! Thanks for everything Andover Equity Builders.”

As Baby Boomers age, responsibilities for the next generation increase accordingly. Parents in need of care often turn to their children for help. Many American homes are now teeming with three and four generations all caring for each other and working together to make ends meet.
