AARP HomeFit  Program

Wednesday, Oct. 11 – 1:00 p.m.

The AARP HomeFit program was developed to educate older adults how to navigate all living spaces independently to allow them to remain in their own homes as they age.  Participants receive information on how to easily evaluate their own home for ‘livability’ should they themselves or one of their family members become unable to use stairs, or must rely on assistive devices.  It is designed to help individuals plan for independence, choice and dignity as they age.  At the event a HomeFit facilitator will help you understand how homes can be designed and modified to help you get around independently in all of your living areas and how to make your home as safe as possible.  You will also receive a personal copy of the AARP HomeFit Guide.

Reservations are required – call Sandwich COA at 508-888-4737.   Deadline to register is Friday, October 6
