n4a and the Eldercare Locator have partnered with the University of Southern California Leonard Davis School of Gerontology on the 2019 Home for the Holidays campaign, which focuses on home modifications. This national public education campaign aims to ensure that older adults and their caregivers are aware of the many services and programs available in communities around the country to support them as they modify their homes for successful aging
The goal of annual Eldercare Locator’s annual Home for the Holidays campaign is to encourage discussion of important issues affecting older Americans at a time of the year when family and friends often gather. Past campaigns have addressed long-distance caregiving, the growing problem of social isolation and loneliness, and strategies to help older adults transition to no longer driving.
To help educate the public and key stakeholders about this year’s issue, n4a produced a consumer brochure, Modifying Your Home for Healthy Aging, and a toolkit containing resources the Aging Network can use to promote the availability of home modification resources in their communities.
