About Jim Bedient

Jim Bedient - Aging In Place Specialist

Finding and recommending solutions to unsafe conditions in and around your home, is my focus. Age Safe® America's 240-point home safety assessment, conducted by a trained Advisor is a great start to finding the potentially hurtful conditions. 
Building on my experiences as a handyman, remodeler, and safety consultant, I've added credentials with Age Safe® America's Senior Home Safety Specialist™ and Advisor programs and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB®)   Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist (CAPS) certifications.  
Planning and acting before your mobility, good vision or hearing diminishes, are critical steps to Aging In Place. Find out what safety hazards you may face in and around your home with my 240-point safety evaluation. 
Many years of experience as a handyman, building wheelchair ramps, installing safety grab bars, improving visibility by changing out incandescent to LED lights, modifying doorway access for walkers/wheelchairs, building specialty furniture, Habitat for Humanity construction volunteer, and many more building trades/woodworking activities.
I am an early baby boomer. I am also exposed to age related mobility, vision and hearing issues that impacts my safety and everyone else in our generations.
As my wife and I age, we have plans to remove more furniture, change additional overhead incandescent, and spot lighting to LED, adding additional safety bars, removing area rugs that will become trip hazards at some point. We have a plan!
Married for 52+ years with grandchildren.  
I continue to volunteer with many groups including my church where I am an usher.  
I am a Masters competitive swimmer, planning on competing well into my ninety's, God willing.
I am honest, courteous, reliable and proud to be of service to my communities.
