Adult Development and Aging

Simple Home Modification

There are many reasons why people want to stay in their homes longer as they age, including freedom, the need to be surrounded by familiar possessions and loved ones, memories, and the financial advantages associated with living at home.

Participants will:

  • have a better understanding of what it means to "age in place,"
  • recognize the cost associated with aging in place versus residential living,
  • be able to complete simple home modifications to help people age in place,
  • know where to find more information on simple home modifications, and
  • be able to assess living space for aging in place.
