Latest News

The latest news in my life is this web site! Welcome to the new and improved where you can find helpful strategies to organize both your health and your home.


Keep Grandma Off the Floor!

My newest professional focus is an initiative called “At Home for Life,” a program that helps people to successfully age in place and remain safely in their own homes. The National Aging in Place Council defines aging in place as “the ability to continue to live in one’s home safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income or ability level. It means living in a familiar environment and being able to participate in family and other community activities”. As we age we must adapt to the challenges of performing the activities of daily living that we take for granted such as climbing stairs, bathing, meal preparation, and managing the house.

Enhance your ability to overcome these challenges and more successfully access and navigate all areas of your home with an At Home for Life Residential Assessment.  Visit our At Home for Life page for more information on this initiative.
