“Aging in Place: Living Well in the Community”
Session IV: “This Is Living: The Age Friendly Home"
Thursday, February 17th from 10 am – 11:30 am
The majority of older people want to age in place, which is possible with the right support and planning. This multi-part roundtable series will bring together experts and thought leaders to help us understand some of the vital components needed to age well in the community.
The February 17th Roundtable will offer information about creating an age friendly living space, and how to access resources to help you make the minor repairs needed to age in place safely. Additionally, you will hear about the Department for the Aging’s support programs, including fall prevention, case management, Friendly Visiting to reduce social isolation, and the Assigned Counsel Program, which provides legal representation in Housing Court.
The February 17th Roundtable features:
- Brian Pape, Design for Aging Committee, at the NYC Chapter of the American Institute for Architecture
