SUCCASUNNA — On Saturday, Sept. 10 Spectrum Construction & Development will take part in the 24th Annual Suckasunny Day event as part of the “Changing Face of Aging” Resource Fair. The fair will feature 15 members of the Information Network on Aging (INOA) including Home Instead Senior Care, an Elder Law attorney, a licensed nutritionist, and a Geriatric Care Manager, to name just a few. Spectrum will participate by providing consultations to those who are considering a multi-generational new home or addition/renovation, or aging-in-place project. The fair will take place in the parking lot at 109 Main Street from 10 to 4 p.m. In recent years, Spectrum has experienced a significant increase in the number of multi-generational addition/renovations projects aimed at accommodating older parents or grandparents into the family home. They’ve also seen an increase in the number of renovation projects intended to make residences safer, more functional and accessible for owners who wish to remain in their home as they age, or at least as long as possible. “Families come to us with a project in mind, like an in-law suite, and they have questions not only about cost, but overall feasibility,” says Don Dyrness, President of Spectrum. “We aim to provide a 'one-stop shopping’ experience when it comes to the design and construction of a new home or addition/renovation. Customers rely on us for superior quality design, construction and service, but we also have a network of professionals, like Home Instead, who can assist those facing through major life transitions, like retirement and aging.” Established in 1989, Spectrum Construction & Development Co., Inc. is a family business, owned and operated by father and son, Dan and Don Dyrness, both long-time residents of Succasunna.
