Consumer Awareness Strategies

PROMOTING AGING IN PLACE BY ENHANCING ACCESS TO HOME MODIFICATIONS: CONSUMER AWARENESS STRATEGIES

With support from the Administration for Community Living (ACL), US Department of Health and Human Services

GOAL: to maximize older adults’ ability to age in place by increasing the availability and awareness of home modification at the local, state, and national levels


When consumers lack information and adapt to the constraints of their home environment, the traditional supply and demand scenario breaks down. To stimulate consumer demand and access to home modification services, USC will make existing consumer resources available on its Home Modification Information Network database and create new resources that address the needs of underserved populations to disseminate to older persons and their caregivers.
