Aging In Place

Aging In Place

The Home Repair Program’s Aging in Place component offers a special “Home Support for Seniors” program that makes accessibility and energy efficiency improvements for Morris County households with a member aged 62 and over. Volunteer teams work under the direction of Habitat staff and volunteer supervisors to make changes that will enable seniors to move around safely inside their homes and complete the routines of daily living. By doing this, the program will help senior residents continue to live in their own homes longer and maintain their independence. The program began in October 2016 with a Capacity Building grant from Habitat for Humanity International. A large project in Netcong in 2017-2018 will make a public park and seven homes accessible.
