New fee-based program to manage homes to help older adults age in place introduced in MetroWest
By Douglas Flynn / November 22, 2017
Blackstone Williams Properties, a Boston-based real estate, home care and property management firm that serves communities throughout MetroWest, has introduced a new program designed to help older adults age in place in their own home.

The Blackstone Williams Home Advocates Program is a fee-based service with plans ranging from $149 to $499 a month. Memberships include a Total Home Evaluation that analyzes imminent safety issues, home maintenance and modification needs, short term and long term projects and proposed frequency of Blackstone Williams Home Advocates' visits. Services can then include home safety, maintenance and modifications, short and long term planning, regular inspections, short term management and sale preparation.

Blackstone Williams notes on its website how the idea to create this program came about. 

“Our firsthand experience with the challenges facing families living with aging and illness is what led us to add Blackstone Williams Home Advocates to our robust property services. 

“When our president and founder's father-in-law was succumbing to Alzheimer's, we were fortunate enough to have the skills and knowledge to care for his home and support his loved ones. In living through the difficulties families must overcome, we realized there has to be a solution that makes transitioning easier for everyone.

“Joining the Blackstone Williams Home Advocates Community offers you peace of mind, knowing that your home is being cared for just as you would want. Freeing you from worry and stress is our objective, giving you more time to spend focusing on what is truly important: time with loved ones.”

For more information about Blackstone Williams Home Advocates, call 855-410-HOME (4663), email info@bwhomeadvocates.com or visit their website.
