The Reason We Founded Promise

Living in a home that isn’t compatible with your needs is incredibly difficult, but every day, hundreds of adults face obstacles that threaten their ability to live independently in the St. Louis area. Whether you’re having a difficult time with doorways, stairs or safely using the restrooms, taking care of your own needs can become impossible – but if you’re like most people, the last thing you want to do is give up your independence. Fortunately, you may not have to.

Aging In Place
Staying in your own home

The industry term, “Aging in place,” means staying in your own home, surrounded by the unique memories and comforts you’ve built up over your lifetime.

Unfortunately, many homes are not safe or comfortable as people mature and begin to encounter mobility issues. Stairways, narrow doorways and bathroom difficulties often result in people having to leave their beloved homes, moving into institutional living. Promise Home Works was founded to change this.  With care and dedication, our local St. Louis occupational therapists discover challenges to staying in your own home. Then we work with innovative equipment manufacturers and the best construction professionals to design and implement the changes needed to make staying in your own home safe and comfortable.  90% of adults 65 and older surveyed indicated that they would rather stay in their own homes than to relocate.

I wanted to thank you again for the excellent service that Promise Home Works provided. The shower looks great and the project was on-time. Aside from the quality of work received, it was the friendliness and professionalism that Promise offered that we really appreciated. My Grandfather was very excited to be able to take his first shower in quite some time.
