What is Aging in Place?

Our Aging in Place program is a partnership with people aged 65+ to assist them in aging safely in their own homes. Our program focuses making safety improvements, mobility modifications, and offers assistance in coordinating with additional resources that may be available to help with other age related barriers.

Age Related Barriers

  • Health

  • Isolation

  • Hunger

  • Transportation

​Critical Repair Concerns

  • safety

  • accessibility

  • mobility

  • Ramps and Rails

What kind of assistance is available through our program?

Our program addresses safety, accessibility, and mobility concerns through branches of our Critical Home Repair and our Ramps and Rails programs.

 

Not only do we complete person-specific home repairs and modifications — from widening hallways and installing grab bars to building a ramp and updating flooring — but by working with local community organizations, we can connect older adults with social services to address age-related issues including health, isolation, hunger and lack of transportation.

 


 

Our process: 

Our aging in place coordinator will perform our intake process. In this conversation, the homeowner discusses their activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing and eating, as well as how they pay bills, clean their homes, communicate with others, run errands and manage any medications they take. 

If Critical Home Repairs are needed, our aging in place coordinator will send our construction team out to do a home repair assessment for qualified applicants.
