Home modification seminar featured at Home Show

Posted: Sunday, February 28, 2010

JUNEAU - As part of Southeast Alaska Building Industry Association's 31st annual Home Show, the seminar "Home Modifications For a Lifetime" will be held Saturday at Centennial Hall.

"Our goal is to get information to the public on how they can modify their home as they age," said Liz Lucas, of AARP's Juneau Community Council. "Aging in place, as in aging in your own home is what most people want."

Doug Fanyak, Aging and Disability Resource Center Coordinator for Southeast Alaska Independent Living will facilitate the seminar.

Panelists will include knowledgeable people on subjects such as: universal design, home design and modification, housing choices, checklists, adaptive devices for the home, financing information to help in remodeling, and a whole lot more.

AARP Community Council will share a booth at the Home Show with Southeast Senior Services and Southeast Alaska Independent Living Council.

AARP/SAIL/SESS advocates for home modification projects as they so often mean the difference between older Americans being forced to move or be able to continue to live in their own home.

The home modification seminar is free and open to the public. For more information, call Liz Lucas, AARP Juneau Community Council coordinator, at 789-9655.
