HomeFit Workshop & Local Resource Fair in Onalaska Sept. 23

Posted on 07/30/19


From simple do-it-yourself repairs to larger design projects, AARP Wisconsin is offering a free workshop in Onalaska on Monday, September 23, to help area residents make their homes safer and more comfortable for them as they age.

The HomeFit Workshop & Local Resource Fair will be held at the Onalaska American Legion Struck-Klandrud Post 336, 731 Sand Lake Rd., Onalaska, from 10 a.m. to noon. Participation is free, but space is limited and registration is required. Click here to register or call toll free 1-877-926-8300.

The AARP HomeFit program was developed to educate older adults on how to navigate all types of 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 to help individuals plan for independence, choice and dignity as they age.

At the event you will learn how homes can be designed and modified to help you get around independently in all of your living areas and how to make your home as safe as possible. Local partners Aging & Disability Resource Center of La Crosse County, La Crosse Area Builders Association, Independent Living Resources, and Onalaska Fire Department will be on hand to share their knowledge and answer questions.
