Numbers Don’t Lie

According to the Administration on Aging, an AARP housing survey conducted around 2009 found that, “83% of older Americans want to stay in their current homes for the rest of their lives,” but other studies show that most homes are not designed to accommodate the needs of people over age 65. Most older people live in homes that are more than 20 years old. As these buildings get older along with their residents, they may become harder to live in or maintain. A house that was perfectly suitable for a senior at age 55, for example, may have too many stairs or slippery surfaces for a person who is 70 or 80. Research by the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that home modifications and repairs may prevent 30% to 50% of all home accidents among seniors, including falls that take place in these older homes.

According to the Administration on Aging, 93 percent of United States seniors ages 65 and older, are covered solely by Medicare. Though it is possible to receive financial reimbursements for updating bathroom facilities for seniors, it is not a simple, quick, or gaurenteed process.
