We want to support our seniors through a grant program that would enable modifications in their homes so that they can continue to live and age in place. We used the "AARP Homefit Guide" to provide a list of items that would allow them to do this.
These included: bed safety rails, toilet safety frames, reaching tool, bath seat, tub grip handle, grab bars with mounting kits, handheld shower heads, and walking canes. These items will be available at the Senior-Community Center on a first-come-first-served basis.
To qualify, we will require seniors to be 65 years or older by December 31, current on their income/property taxes and live in an owner-occupied home in Brooklyn. Applicants may only own one home. Please call 216-635-4222 for more information.
