Rebuilding Together Aging-in-Place & Safe at Home Checklist

Rebuilding Together has long recognized that greater attention must be given our elderly population, so they may safely age-in-place in their homes.

We have also built lasting national partnerships with Area Agencies on Aging, AARP, American Occupational Therapy Association, National Association of Home Builders, National Council on Aging, and others to help address the housing needs of our elderly population.
