Free Booklet, Web Site Offer Strategies for Aging in Place

The National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association, in partnership with the National Advisory Council on Aging in Place, has introduced a free booklet and Web site to provide older home owners with practical information on how they can make their homes more livable.

The “NRMLA Guide to Aging In Place” gathers design ideas that home owners can use to make their homes safer and more comfortable as they age and provides useful information on where to find products and professionals who can help plan and implement modifications.

The booklet also contains several real-life case studies of people who have successfully modified their homes to accommodate their changing needs.

For a free copy of the booklet, click here, or call 866-264-4466. The link also provides visitors with information on assessing and adapting a home environment as well as strategies for paying for large-scale home modifications.
