AARP and AOTA teamed up to create a program to promote aging in place entitled “Home Fit”. It is an interactive program with the intention of educating consumers about home safety, universal design and accessibility.

This first ever Hot Topics workshop will have two sections:

  1. Training on the community presentations of HomeFit
  2. Occupational Therapy evaluation, assessment and recommendations for home modifications

Course Objectives:

  • Training on how to run a Home Fit presentation.
  • Understanding the basics of Universal Design and how it facilitates aging in place.
  • Review of existing validated assessments an OT can use to perform a home safety evaluation.
  • Resources on continuing education opportunities to become a home modification specialist.
