Testimonials

“As a pre-op partial knee replacement client, I had Rachel and Jane come to my home to review obstacle that I would face after my surgery. Their insight and expertise was extremely helpful to prepare for my post-op recovery at home.”

J. Loftin

“Rachel Blackwood is incredibly knowledgeable about helping people stay in their homes safely. I learned so much from her presentations, which are very informative and entertaining. I have invited Designing Independence to assess my ranch house in North Raleigh and got some great feedback on making my home safer. I live by myself and want to be able to stay here without having to move to an assisted living community.”
