Frequently, older adults and their caregivers are looking for ways to modify a home to “Age in Place.” While we cannot recommend specific contractors or builders, here are some fantastic resources to share with your clients.

In addition to some directories, there are some tips/resources for specific populations (veterans, low income, etc.).  Many options for modifications to discuss as they interview potential contractors/designers. USC’s Fall Prevention Center has an east-to-navigate page with a ton of great resources. 

This is a great place to start:
