Hoover Family Foundation Grant Awarded to The Reuben Center

The Hoover Family Foundation recently awarded a grant with the goal to assist older adults to successfully age-in-place.  The benefits of aging-in-place are numerous including prolonged independence, sustained emotional and mental health, comfort with familiar surroundings and cost-effectiveness compared with moves to assisted living facilities.  One way to assist older adults is through home modifications.  The majority of older adults live in homes more than twenty years old.  As a person ages, these homes become harder to maintain and present safety challenges.  One avenue to address this is through home modifications, changes that are made to adapt living spaces to meet the needs of people with physical limitations so they can continue to remain in their home.
