Four organizations in three Wisconsin cities have received 2020 AARP Community Challenge grants for improvement projects to benefit residents of all ages.
Home is where the heart is, and well-designed, livable communities promote health, sustain growth, and make for happier, healthier residents of every age, in all life stages. AARP Wisconsin is working to raise awareness in the greater La Crosse area about the need for age-friendly, livable communities.
The AARP HomeFit program was developed to educate attendees on how to navigate all living spaces independently to allow them to remain in their own homes as they age. Participants receive information on how to easily evaluate their own home for “livability” should they themselves or one of their family members become unable to use stairs, or must rely on assistive devices. It is designed help individuals plan for independence, choice, and dignity as they age.
