A home for growing old gives us the opportunity to stay engaged and useful, remain part of our community, and build confidence when our abilities and strengths decline. Exploring how to live longer and better in one’s home, this course will cover design criteria; adapting your environment to your needs; “smart homes” and personal technology; health care and home-care givers; transitions and downsizing; and community resources.
