LEAD DESIGNER- Lynn Stoner-Whitsitt, ECHM, OT

Lynn is a certified home safety specialist, with 20 years clinical occupational therapy expertise. The combination of her medical knowledge, with the additional education and training in home modification, makes her the one to call. She provides consultation and project management services. Lynn combines mainstream design concepts with functionality to provide successful recommendations to remain in your own home. Need grab bars installed? They don't have to be an eyesore. Lynn's expertise is identifying: 1) the perfect product, that functionally fits your space, and 2) exactly where to install it. There's not a project too big or too small when the goal is safety and functionality in your own home. Why not create a better living, non-institutional, design to fulfill your dream of keeping your home A HOME. Lighting is often overlooked yet an integral component of our environment, especially for people over 50 years old. Do you have layered lighting? We can help.   

We all age everyday whether you're 2 or 72 y/o. Aging in place is a cost effective solution and we can explain how. Call today 913.481.2421.
