For years, studies and surveys have documented how seniors want to age in community, often where they’ve lived for many years. Providing a safe and comfortable home can require a range of repairs, and/or accessibility modifications that accommodate changes in functional ability. Unless extremely minor, skilled assessment and installation practitioners should manage access modification work. Financing is the third critical component, often the make-or-break factor in undertaking a project. This session will explore basic access remodeling financing techniques, remodeling “realities” and funding resources.
