A Warmer, Safer Christmas through Home Extend

Written by Over 55

December 23, 2015

Thanks to the Home Extend pilot project created by Over 55 London in partnership with Pathways Skills Development and Placement Centre and funded by the Sifton Family Foundation, a senior couple will enjoy a warmer, safer Christmas and future in their newly upgraded home.  The Crasto’s 50 year old home was desperately in need of repairs to its heating, windows and doors, entrances, and safety features.  With limited financial resources, the couple was distressed at the prospect of being unable to remain in their home for much longer even though they both enjoy good health.  Fortunately, due to the level of need and with gratitude, the family were delighted to be chosen by Over 55 London  for the launch of  Home Extend, a pilot project to provide repairs and adaptations  in the categories of energy efficiency, accessibility, and safety at no cost so that Senior Citizens are able to stay in their homes longer.

Congratulations to the Crasto family.  May you enjoy many more years in your home.
