Alternatives is launching a new, critical resource to identify ways to prepare the homes of older adults or adults with disabilities for the coming years: HouseCheck.  Certified professionals provide an analysis of how well a home is functioning, share recommendations and provide guidance every step of the way.

As people age or are confronted with the challenges of disability, caring for their own needs becomes more difficult. For more than thirty years, Alternatives has connected individuals with the right resource or solution to help them stay in their own home as long as possible.  Through the years, many children of aging parents have come to us to ask for ways to improve the safety of their parents’ home.  It is from this need that we have developed a comprehensive assessment process to guide families to prepare for the coming years.  Each set of recommendations is tailored around the individual’s priorities, strengths and concerns.

Do these statements sound familiar?

I want to stay in my home…

I’ve fallen in the last month…

Taking garbage out is difficult…

It’s hard getting in and out of the tub...

I’m worried about my parents...

I don’t know where to begin…

“We have been preparing to provide this quality resource for older adults or adults with disabilities for quite some time,” noted Kathy Weiman CEO.  “Many children of aging parents have shared their worries with us and this service is designed to give them peace of mind.  That’s a big deal.” 

Alternatives’ Home Modification Practitioners have combined years of experience and specialized training to provide a high quality resource for the community.  Please visit Alternatives’ website at:  www.alternativesforyou.org to learn about the variety of services available.  The goal is simple:  we want to help people stay in their home as long as possible despite the challenges of aging or disability.
