Imagine if you were only able to leave your house when someone was there to help you down your rickety, deteriorated front steps. For Rosemary, a senior who lives outside of Wilmington, this was a reality. Without the assistance of others, she was effectively housebound and trapped inside.
DEHOFI was able to replace Rosemary’s steps and give her the freedom to come and go as she pleases. When the project was complete, she opened the door and wept uncontrollably out of happiness and gratitude.
We were so happy to complete this minor job which had a major impact on Rosemary’s life!
