WHAT ARE THE MAIN BENEFITS FOR HOME MODIFCATIONS?
The main benefit of making home modifications is the prevention of falls and other accidents. In addition, the modification helps to facilitate, prolong and promote independence. A recent AARP housing survey, stated that "83% of older Americans want to stay in their current homes for the rest of their lives." Additional studies show that most homes are not designed to accommodate the needs of the aging population.
In particular, of concern are the people living in homes that are more than 20 years old. As these homes get older along with their residents, they may become harder to live in. A house that was perfectly suitable may now have too many stairs or slippery surfaces for a person who is becoming less steady on his/her feet. Research by the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that home modifications and repairs may prevent 30% to 50% of all home accidents among seniors, including falls, that take place in these older homes.
