connections are required for the
Hygienicare All-In-One Bath. Qualified plumbing and electrical services may be necessary,
and the purchaser is responsible for any arrangements with a local
contractor. If home modification or remodeling is also desired or necessary,
this must be accomplished by professionals licensed to do this work. For
permanent installations added costs may be incurred in the installation
of a home addition or remodel, including carpentry both interior and
exterior for such things as siding, roofing, mate line connections, setting
interior doors, finish trim, and other miscellaneous finishing. Depending on
specifications painters or other specialties may be needed for both interior
and exterior completion.
Demand Grows for
Hygienicare Products in Changing Market
The costs of
manufacturing and delivering Turtle Homes have accelerated
due in part to price increases of worker's compensation insurance, in-house
labor, on-site development, management, subcontracting and building materials, especially in products made
with wood or steel. Oil price inflation has increased the cost to ship
materials and components to manufacturing facilities, as well as shipping of
the finished product to home sites throughout the United States. Products
made with petrochemicals (i.e., PVC pipe, floor coverings, paint) are more
costly. Rising mortgage interest rates and home-buying programs for
people with disabilities have been under-funded or unavailable. The resolution of
catastrophic injury litigation can take many years. These trends have placed a new home out of reach for those
who need it most, when they need it most.
With a shift in focus
we can better serve people with disabilities and best help those with the
greatest need. We are concentrating our efforts into home modification and
home additions, including
Hygienicare RV/Home Additions Independence and SportMaster featuring the
Hygienicare™ All-In-One Bath, the SureHands® Ceiling Track
Lift System and other assistive products. To meet an increasing
demand for accessibility in existing homes, we will provide home remodelers
with products that can be installed efficiently and affordably. We will
complete our previous orders and contracts and would work with developers on
commercial applications, including multiple unit developments, hospice or
assisted living facilities. In the future we will make plans available for
conventional home construction.
We are not providing
any future turnkey installations of disability homes. If
you want to
purchase a new home, we will build and
deliver an accessible Turtle Home to your location, as long as the purchaser
assumes the entire on-site development, management of and responsibility for
all costs and contracts necessary to complete the home.
