Wall Street bond broker turned entrepreneur, John Michielini, is excited to bring national franchise 101 Mobility to Long Island, New York. Michielini plans to help seniors age in place and avoid the high costs of assisted living by selling and professionally installing wheelchair ramps, stair lifts, bath safety and other mobility solutions.
Long Island, New York (PRWEB) August 06, 2013 - As of July 2013, nursing home rates averaged at a whopping $144,408 per year (New York Health Department, 2013). According to a 2012 national survey by Metlife, assisted living care facilities usually run families about $3,550 every month. Before Long Islanders jump to assisted living facilities, 101 Mobility Long Island owner and operator John Michielini urges families to consider installing mobility enhancing equipment like stair lifts and auto lifts.
Having the right accessibility products in place can help reduce the risk of mobility-restricting injuries and may also provide customers with the added independence needed to successfully age in place. Michielini explains, “It is so important for a person’s well-being to remain in the home they are familiar with. Especially in the Tri-State area with dramatic assisted living costs, a family can choose to have a $3,000 - $5,000 stair lift installed to give aging parents the option to stay in their own home. The right solution may even help prevent falls or other accidental injuries that can send a senior to a nursing home.”
After spending 23 years on Wall Street, Michielini is excited to make a difference in the lives of Long Island residents. He is ready to get in a truck with a box of tools and head out to Long Islanders’ homes so they can have the equipment they need to optimize at-home mobility. From wheelchair rampsto stair lifts to vertical platform lifts to auto lifts to patient lifts and more, 101 Mobility Long Island will offer a full range of mobility solutions professionally installed by factory certified service technicians. Michielini adds, “101 Mobility Long Island is a locally owned business and although we want to have a recognized name, we also want to have a charitable name. We want to be known in our community. Having support from a network of professionals from corporate will help us get there.”
Corporate support combined with 101 Mobility Long Island’s mission to always put the customer first is what Michielini is depending on to help put his locally owned business name on the minds of thousands of Long Island veterans, senior citizens and disabled people facing mobility challenges. Michielini says, “101 Mobility provided me with the best opportunity in this area, giving me the opportunity to help others – not just sell products but provide Long Islanders with an option to choose a better quality of life for themselves and their families.”
