Review for Umbrella of the Capital District, Inc., Schenectady, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My wife and I are trying to stay in our home of almost 50 years and it becomes more difficult as we age. I did most of the upkeep and renovations on my house myself and had my own handyman business for a number of years. But now as I look out my window I see projects and upkeep not being done to health problems.It is very frustrating not to be able to do what you used to do easily. When I heard about Umbrella I met with Brian and soon became a member. They have helped with a number of projects and now I can look out my window and feel pride that my home is being taken care of. The reduced labor cost helps to do things on a fixed income that might not be possible at market priced labor. Umbrella gives us peace of mind we can continue to enjoy our home.

Review for Umbrella of the Capital District, Inc., Schenectady, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I always did my upgrades and maintenance with a helper who did all the basic work while I did the difficult things.I m no longer able to do many of the things I used to do and when I lost my helper to a heart condition I was afraid I would no longer be able maintain my home.It is difficult to pay the current labor rates on a fixed income and the dollars don't go far.When I found Umbrella it was a God send to be able to get things done at a affordable cost and be able to stay in my home of 48 years.I am a relatively new member but all my experiences have been positive.I don't know about other areas of the country but every area should have an organization like Umbrella to help us seniors .
