Poll: Are You a Real Techie?

There’s No Place Like Home

AARP DC has invited Case Design Executive Vice President Bill Millholland to share a range of stylish ways — some inexpensive and easy, and some more complex — to make your home safer and more comfortable for all.

The principle on which he bases his tips and recommendations, known as Universal Design, is about creating a livable space for everyone, regardless of age, size, or ability. That means the dad pushing a stroller, the mom squinting at the newspaper in low lighting, the friend who uses a wheelchair, and anyone trying to open the door with an armload of groceries. Incorporating universal design into a home can be as simple as replacing traditional light switches with easy-to-use rocker-style switches, improving kitchen lighting, and installing easy-to-grip lever door handles. Best of all, when done well, universal design features and products make a home attractive and accessible for both residents and visitors to use.

We invite you to come learn more – and begin planning your own home makeover.

Register today for:

The AARP DC Universal Design Consumer Forum
Hosted by Christian Communities Group Homes
June 17, 10:30am – 12 noon at the
Washington Center for Aging Services
2601 – 18th Street NE
Washington, DC 20018

Registration required by June 14: Call 202-434-7707 or email dcaarp@aarp.org.

Street parking should be easily available. Please don't use the Washington Center for Aging Services parking lot.

Following the program, participants are invited to cross the lawn for an outdoor lunch on the grounds of the Andrus House, a home remodeled using universal design features in honor of AARP’s 50th Anniversary in 2008. Thanks to host Christian Communities Group Homes, registrants can also request a tour of the interior of the Andrus House when they RSVP.
