Helping Seniors Stay Safe at Home
For older adults living in aging homes, staying safe at home includes the need to address repairs and modifications on a limited income. CHAI’s Senior Home Repair and Benefits program allocates dollars annually to each client to address these issues. But when larger needs arise, this grant may not be enough. Fortunately, CHAI has other programs that can help. Recently, one client expressed the need to replace her home’s HVAC system in anticipation of the warmer months ahead. CHAI staff were able to help her obtain a CHAI Energy Savings Loan to replace the equipment, so she will be comfortable and safe year-round, with lower monthly bills.
