We are very excited about the vendor line up for the 2015 Ottawa Health and Wellness Expo. Once again, the variety of vendors that are participating ensures that the event will once again provide quality health and wellness products, services and information to our city. We want everyone to know more about who our vendors are and how their business fits in to the Expo’s passion for seeing Ottawa the healthiest city in Canada. Between now and the Expo, we will be highlighting some of these amazing vendors. Stay tuned to our blog as we feature our vendors in a special vendor spotlight blog.
Vendor Spotlight: Next Step Transitions
What type of client benefits most from using your products and services?
Next Step Transitions specializes in bath safety and stair solutions, providing free health in-home consultations and direct installation of items such as grab bars and tub cut-aways, to stair lifts and ramp systems. Our services benefit anyone facing small to significant mobility challenges in their homes. We have also helped many families who live out of town, but have wanted to support their aging parents to safely stay in their home. Our clients have the added confidence that our Health Care Professionals will work together with families to find solutions, and make ethical recommendations based on the highest standards and best practices in health care. Adapting your home may seem like a simple decision, but this can be a difficult time for many. Our clients benefit from the added support of our trustworthy and compassionate nurses, who work seamlessly with our local and caring installation professionals.
What do your clients rave about when talking about your business?
Our clients have been genuinely thrilled that we have been able to help them maintain their independence and freedom by making a few small adaptations to their homes. Helping people to enjoy every inch of the home they love and have worked so hard for is as rewarding to us, as it is to our clients. We’ve also received wonderful feedback about our Registered Health Care Professionals working directly with our installation experts. With no “middle man”, our clients have been able to help design and receive a barrier-free home by working with one accountable and conscientious company.
What do most people not know about your business?
The heartwarming (and kitten-covered) Thank-You card that we received from our very first clients is still posted on our fridge at home. Every day, we have a great reminder of where we started and that the work we do can truly make a difference in someone living a healthy and safe life in their own home.
