Referencing an article in AARP, we just might give you the chance to stay in your own home. “On a bitterly cold morning a few years ago, Mrs. McQueen awoke to what sounded like artillery fire: the ice-covered branches of trees cracking in the wind. A winter storm knocked out the power in the home she shared with her husband Jim. No heat or water, Mrs. McQueen recalls. The outage lasted nine days; the couple both 82 at the time weathered the ordeal in isolation with the help of a camp stove. Their three grown kids were spread out in three different states. The McQueens were alone and it scared them. Maybe it was time to think about leaving their home of 40 years. Luckily the McQueens found a way to stay.” Programs offered by You’re First allow older persons the opportunity to stay in the comfort of their own homes without being alone. Our reassurance program costs less than $1 a day and gives families peace of mind knowing their loved ones are being looked after on a daily basis especially when disasters strike. “To dump 40 years of building a home to move into an apartment and/or condominium doesn’t appeal to me at all,” Jim says. The idea of You’re First reassurance program means he won’t have to.
