Staying Safe While Aging in Place
Please let us know if you plan to attend this program in-person.
Home purchase is generally the single most expensive purchase adults make during their lifetimes and, for many aging homeowners, their home probably represents financial security, family memories, and community familiarity. Thus, it should come as no surprise to adult-children that many of their aging parents want to remain in their homes as they age. This concept, known as “aging in place,” means living in your home safely, comfortably, and as independently as possible, regardless of age or ability level.
How can adult-children and their parents assess whether their parents’ home is safe and accessible? What remodeling and modifications are possible and appropriate to help parents age in place? How do you find someone to help with remodeling and modifications? This program will help adult-children understand the concept of aging in place, assess their parents’ homes for safety and accessibility concerns, and become familiar with potential home remodeling and modifications that can help make their parents’ dreams reality.
