Most seniors and individuals living with disabilities prefer to continue living comfortably at home rather than moving. We don’t believe you have to sacrifice your independence or the comforts of your home. We understand the unique challenges you face and how these changes can be quite daunting.

First Response is a specialty contractor dedicated to providing services to assist those with accessibility issues due to age, illness, or injury. Combining medical knowledge, insurance knowledge, home modification construction knowledge and network management experience, First Response has a unique perspective and understanding of how to satisfy our clients. Our team members are experienced, well-educated, and committed to ensuring a high-quality of life for all of our clients.

It is not enough to know how to build something. You need to know WHY something needs to be built. First Response knows why because of our training and knowledge of medical diagnosis, functional limitations with specific injuries, recognizing environmental barriers, working with caregivers and understanding not only the physical needs but the functional needs as well. This specialized training improves not only the quality of work, but also the quality of service.

First Response can:

  • Relocate Walls and Widen Doorways
  • Plumbing Adjustments for Access
  • Electrical Adjustments for Better Access
  • Ramps and Stair Lifts
  • Grab Bars and Railings
  • Universal Access Fixtures

… and much more, just ask!


It begins with our in-home evaluation. First Response will work directly with your case worker (if necessary) to help ensure the most appropriate action is taken. We will do a complete walk through of your, or your loved one’s home, to evaluate what will be required based on your unique needs. We take pride in changing the home to work for your individual needs, not forcing you to fit the home. As always, safety, mobility and access are our top priorities.


Once we have completed our evaluation we will explain our findings and what we deem to be the best steps going forward. We will show our estimate and scope of work and will not begin work until everything is agreed upon.


Upon an agreed scope of work, we will begin the reconstruction process. We understand that the need to modify a home is immediate and we will concentrate our efforts on the highest priority items first.
