A Note From Our Vice President, Jim Greatorex

Published in Home Modifications on May 13, 2020

Hey VGM Live at Home Members, 

This month I want to hit you with several quick bullet points that could be helpful as we navigate through the next couple of months of uncertainty. Through my long business career, one of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned is to focus on the things that can be controlled. Our current environment brings many uncertainties we can’t control. One thing we can control is how we spend our time. Here are some worth-while ways to spend time in the next few weeks.

Check out new opportunities:

New vendor, Evekare – We are excited to present to you the unique, sleek designed, competitively-priced bathroom products from Evekare, a global leader. Find grab bars with LED lights, easy-to-use/install bidets, unique toilet safety designs and “talk of the town” glow-in-the-dark toilet seats!

Re-Release Circadian Lighting Product - You need to check out the newly-branded “Serena” residential lighting product that greatly benefit memory impaired clients! We have a ready for market opportunity with a disruptive technology.

Register for Heartland At Home - Accessibility, one of five event tracks, will have our sessions on 4 consecutive Mondays at 2 p.m. CST starting June 15th. A note when registering - just choose the track you want to attend and register via the event details. It's all free!

You will see links to all these offerings in this newsletter.

One great thing that we see every day in working with the exceptional businesses that make up the LAH membership is the want to help each other make it through this challenging time. We are entering a new normal where the demand for Aging in Place and Home Access services will increase. Rising up together as an industry to serve our clients is in everyone’s best interest!

Thank-you for being a VGM Live at Home Member.
