Staying Home: Making Smart Choices for Easy Living

We should make some changes here...
Small changes in your home can make a big difference in your life. They can make your home a space that enables you to thrive as your living situation changes and make life easier for visitors to your home—from grandchildren to adult children and friends. Attend this free workshop to find out how simple changes to your home can create an environment where everyone is welcome, and everyone can flourish.

AARP is teaming up with Mt. Vernon at Home, Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood and Community Services, and Fairfax County Building for All Committee ( BFAC) to bring you this free community workshop; it includes a panel of experts will share practical tips to minimize the financial costs of home modifications, avoid frauds and scams, and learn about local resources available.

 AARP brings real possibilities to your community.
