What if all homes could be suitable for anyone regardless of a person’s age or physical ability?  What if a person who wants to live independently, regardless of his or her age or physical ability could do just that?  AARP teamed up with partners: Arlington Neighborhood Village, Arlington Library, and a panel of experts, to bring practical answers to these questions. This workshop, Staying Home: Making Smart Choices for Easy Living, was attended by over 120 people on April 1, 2017 in Arlington, Virginia.  For most in the audience, the concerns raised struck a personal note, and they came to understand the choices available for them and their households.
