Tony and Lori Rhodig have owned Access at Home, Inc focusing on senior residential accessibility for nearly a decade. Tony is a Certified Aging in Place Specialist through the National Association of Home Builders. Tony started selling, installing, and supporting safe resident/patient handling equipment in 2012. Lori helped launch Access at Home, Inc., then worked as a program manager and rejoined the business in 2014 as the VP of Sales and Marketing.
In these current times of internet sales and direct purchasing, local service and strong business relationships built on trust and respect are an invaluable resource given the critical importance of resident and staff safety and health. They are the real deal — authentic and trustworthy in all of their dealings.
Personally, they are both faced with helping to meet their own parents’ needs for more care as they age in their mid to early 80’s both locally and afar. They are currently caring for Tony’s parents in their home in the midst of making their talents very personal for their family. Here’s the short story.
