AARP Connecticut is helping families evaluate their homes, cars and communities to determine what changes may be necessary for older people to continue to live independently.
As part of its Road to Livability program, the state office has trained 30 volunteers to facilitate such discussions in local communities. The program focuses on helping residents and family caregivers identify needs and resources in their communities. Nearly 7 in 10 Connecticut adults age 40 and older say it is extremely or very important to make services available to aid independent living.
AARP Connecticut will showcase Road to Livability information at the 21st annual Spring Home Show, March 27-29, at the XL Center in Hartford. To request a presentation on this topic for a local organization, call AARP Connecticut at 866-295-7279 toll-free or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
