Are you in the Elder Care industry?  Do you have aging parents to care for?  If so, there are insights and secrets of the trade that can provide you with peace of mind and relieve the burdens that come with dealing with barriers in the home for the elderly.  Even if you are simply remodeling, you'll gain incredible insight from this class.

This Teleclass will cover:

  • Small inexpensive things you can do;
  • What specific changes you can make in each room of the house, so your parents can live there - safely and independently - as they grow older.
  • The cardinal sins of typical home construction and their effect on your family
  • How to find a CAPS Certified contractor who does the type of work on the AARP and NAHB websites.
  • Bigger home modification projects and what they cost.
  • Hope for the future - changing the way we build houses
