We Impact Lives
I am so humbled and appreciative of the kind people who made nutritious meals for my family as I went through an unexpected serious operation. I have been overwhelmed, both physically and emotionally. The kindness of Harpswell Aging at Home and others who brought these meals to my home when I was unable to prepare them myself lessened that worry so I could focus more on healing.
I will always be touched by those who made me feel cared about while going through this and I’m proud to be part of a community with such compassion for others. I would also like to say a special thank you to the HAH repair team, which in the past helped make my home a safer place for my family. I will always remember it and pay it forward when someone else needs a hand. I thank you so very much.Kim Johnson, Great Island
I would like to express my deepest appreciation for the fantastic work done by your crew. The deck is beautiful as well as very comforting to be able to walk across it without the fear of falling through. I now can see with the replacement lights and added outlets as well. The tub surround and medicine cabinet installed in my bathroom.is beautiful. It is all really wonderful. The crew of men is top-notch. I thank you with my whole heart for the work done to help me be able to stay in my home.Harpswell Resident
Last week at 7:30 am, a cavalcade of your members showed up at our house to fulfill the tasks that you had outlined for them with us. To a man, they were gracious, competent, quiet, and efficient. The list of work was completed by 11:30 and they left to move on to another job. I suspect the house was left cleaner than they found it! We were delighted and very impressed. The services you provide to those of us who are seniors here in Harpswell are such a gift. This is the second time you have helped us and every time I grasp the rails you constructed at both our front and back door I say a little note of thanks to you.Harpswell Resident
