AARP HomeFit Worksheets

The worksheet downloads listed here can help you put into place the ideas discussed in the AARP HomeFit Guide

Because home maintenance is part of keeping a home fit, we’ve added home care checklists and schedules as well. In addition, we're including a worksheet for listing and posting your Emergency Contacts so you, members of your household, neighbors and emergency responders can find this important information if or when needed.

The following websites feature information about many of the topics addressed in this guide.

AARP Livable Communities

The AARP HomeFit Guide was created by the AARP Livable Communities team with input from AARP Michigan, AARP Florida and other AARP state offices. The award-winning AARP Livable Communities website (you're on it right now!) has information about how communities nationwide can become more livable for older adults and people of all ages. Learn more about housing needs and solutions.

National Association of Home Builders

A trade association for the home construction industry, the NAHB administers the Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) program and its website contains consumer-oriented homeownership and home remodeling information.

American Occupational Therapy Association

Although the AOTA is a professional association for occupational therapists, assistants and students, the website's "Patients and Clients" section contains information for consumers.

Better Living Design Institute

Homes in America are not currently designed and built to accommodate everyone in the household throughout their changing lives and life stages. With the boomer population in America continuing to grow and indicating a strong desire to stay in their homes, the need for more livable, age-friendlier home design becomes increasingly important. The Better Living Design Institute serves as a resource about home and product design innovation that supports healthy living and safe home environments for all.
