Home Fit Goes to Rolla

Would you like to stay safely in your home forever? Most people would. According to AARP research, nearly 90 percent of people 45 plus, want to remain in their home and community for a long as possible. That’s where AARP’s AARP Home Fit initiative comes in.

Home Fit is a free seminar that helps individuals assess and make modifications to their current dwelling so that they can remain in their home independently as they age. A Home Fit seminar will be presented in Rolla Aug. 15 from 10 a.m. until 12 noon at The Centre, 1200 Holloway. Attendees will explore assessing their home for livability and considering physical changes to make them more safe and accessible.

During the seminar, the following topics will be covered: good home design, home safety, home maintenance, energy conservation tips, and how to get help for home improvements.

Participants will receive AARP printed materials to help guide them in conducting a home safety check that examines entrances and exits, including porches, lighting, pathways and house numbers. Tips to keep steps and stairways safe and free, such as free from clutter and tightened handrails and adequate lighting will be discussed. Each room of the house is eligible for checking: the bathroom, kitchen, living room, dining room and bedroom and should be examined closely to create a safer, more comfortable home.

To register call toll-free 1-866-389-5627 and ask for JoAnn Rose. Seating is limited, so make your call today.
