End of Life Planning talk at the library


HAVERHILL — The public library will host a talk with attorney Gerald Shyavitz from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on May 30 to help protect yourself and your loved ones. Estate planning attorneys prepare Living Wills, Healthcare Proxies, and Durable Powers of Attorney for clients along with Wills and Trusts all the time. These end of life directives are given to the clients by the attorney and therefore the attorney believes that his job is done. But it isn’t. These directives do little good unless the clients also participate in extensive conversations with their healthcare agents and family. Register online at under Calendar of Events or call 978-373-1586, ext. 608.

Nominate someone in need of grab bars

ANDOVER — House Doctors of Andover is accepting nominations to give a local resident in need a safer, more accessible home bathroom.

House Doctors of Andover will supply and install for free a set of grab bars to a local home in the community. All you have to do is nominate someone you know who you feel would benefit from this offer.

Nominations must be in by the end of May and include your reason for nominating. House Doctors of Andover will collect all qualifying nominations and a lucky homeowner will have their free set of grab bars installed sometime in June.

“Installing grab bars dramatically improves the safety of a home, especially for those with poor balance or limited mobility. However, like any home renovation or modification project, it comes with an out-of-pocket cost,” said Doug Coyle, owner of House Doctors of Andover. “Having limited mobility can be challenging if your home isn’t set up with an accommodating layout, so through this giveaway we hope to positively impact someone’s life by making it easier for daily living.”

Whether it is to support and improve stability and function when standing and sitting, or to lend a hand when getting in or out a bathtub or shower, House Doctors installs grab bars that are designed to enhance any existing bathroom with increased safety and accessibility.

Launched in recognition of National Mobility Awareness Month, the House Doctors Grab Bar Giveaway initiative will accept nominations until May 30. To submit a nomination, visit and select the local participating House Doctors territory.

To learn more about grab bar installation and other home modification services provided by House Doctors of Andover, visit or call 978-474-0788.
