The home modification planning guide is a tool for anyone who plans to age in place. The guide is designed to help you think about how you might actually use the home after developing disabilities. The guide includes a series of questions grouped into four categories, including exterior, accessible routes, essential features, and using the home. By answering these questions, you will have a better understanding of some of the home modifications you might need to make to age in place. This guide also includes information about the type of certifications a contractor familiar with home modifications might have. If you have questions, contact Leacey Brown, SDSU Extension Gerontology Field Specialist.
