Recently, Lee BIA Builders Care was able to help an elderly and disabled homeowner in Fort Myers by providing an accessible ramp at their front entry.
Mr. Smith, 85, is unable to perform daily activities independently and relies on assistance from his wife, Lorraine. He was having a difficult time using his front steps to get in and out of the home, and over the years it had become increasingly difficult for Lorraine to assist him. These conditions were not safe and an accessible ramp was needed.
Fortunately, Lee BIA Builders Care was able to provide these homeowners with an accessible ramp so they can safely enter and exit the home with ease.
