Home Modification for Aging in Place

Home ModificationAs we grow older, most of us want to stay in our homes as long as possible. We realize that the home that we live in may no longer meet our physical needs, yet we are in no hurry to leave it. This lesson explores both small and larger home modifications that we can do easily and cost effectively, and that will allow us to continue to live in our own homes longer. In addition to home modification, we will also explore home devices that can be useful to this challenge. These modifications and devices can help us age in place mentally, physically and financially. Go HERE for more information.
