Based on AARP Home Fit Guide (2008) in order to evaluate your home’s livability, ask yourself

requirements. Your answers will let you know if you need to make changes or if you should

search for a more suitable home.

and kitchen facilities on one level , which are barrier free?

• Are the doorways and hallways wide enough to let a wheel- chair pass through?

• Do doorknobs and faucets have lever handles, which are easier to use than rounded


• Are kitchen countertops mounted at varying heights so they can be used while standing

or seated?
