Home Alterations Help More Elderly People Keep the Homes They Love
Posted: August, 2012
From The Washington Post.
About seven years ago, Bill Cousins realized he was having more difficulty climbing the stairs of his home in the Chevy Chase neighborhood, a result of aging and his post-polio syndrome.
Cousins, a widower who is now 88, said he felt his independence in his home in Northwest Washington slipping away.
But he learned that by making some key modifications to his home and joining an organization that provides various in-home services to elderly people, he could perhaps stay.
