Home/Best Practices: Housing

Best Practices: Housing

Many homes today are not designed for aging safely – they may involve stairs, have thresholds which are hard to cross by wheelchair and walker, have bathrooms without zero-entry showers, benches, or grab-rails. Some communities provide assistance to update older homes and apartments for safe and easier aging. For caregivers, the home environment can be a critical support or challenge in providing good care – sometimes this includes home maintenance and repair issues as well.
The Caregiver Friendly Communities Assessment scores on two factors in this section:

  1. Home Improvement Resources
  2. Affordable Housing Options

Expand the categories below to find the scoring factors and recommended practices for each. You can also download a pdf of the Best Practices Document to save and share.
