Aging in Place

Aging in Place is a partnership with people age 65 or older to help them age safely in their homes. The program focuses on making safety improvements, mobility modifications and weatherization enhancements.

As we grow older, our needs change, and it’s important to have a home that can adapt with us. Did you know that by 2030, 1 in 5 Americans will be 65 or older?
 
It’s important that these adults have a safe and comfortable home to live in, but unfortunately, many older adults struggle with homes that are not equipped to meet their needs. That’s why we’re here to help. Not only do we build new homes, but we also work with older adults to make accessibility upgrades to their current homes.
 
By making these upgrades, older adults can continue to live in their homes while maintaining their independence. We know that aging in place extends longevity and quality of life. Older adults are mentally and physically healthier, feel safer at home, and engage with their family and friends more.
