AARP research consistently finds that the vast majority of people age 50 and older want to stay in their homes and communities for as long as possible. The AARP “HomeFit Guide” was created to help people stay in the homes they love by turning where they live into a “life-long home,” suitable for themselves and anyone in their household. This presentation offers solutions that range from simple do-it-yourself fixes to improvements that are more involved and require skilled expertise but are well worth the expense.
