AARP in St. Louis will team up with licensed occupational therapists to discuss home modifications you or a loved one can make to meet your needs. This one-hour class will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 23.

The presentation will offers how-to tips from AARP’s free HomeFit Guide, which features age-in-place improvements, such as entrance ramps and bathroom grab bars.

“This presentation can help individuals and families make their current or future residence—or that of a loved one—their lifelong home,” said Sheila Holm, community outreach director for AARP in St. Louis. 

The first 100 members to sign up and attend will receive a free My Home Kit, containing a night-light, a jar opener, a flashlight and a tape measure with a level. 

Participants must register by June 18 for the June 23 session. Click on the date to register.

Download the AARP HomeFit Guide or order one by mail at aarp.org/homefit. The guide includes a room-by-room checklist that can be used in any type of dwelling, from a small apartment to a large house.
