Description The purpose of this research project is to answer what existing resources in home modifications are available in Salt Lake County. This project will also try and identify simple and cheap modifications that may be done to an aging adult's home. The long term aim of this project is to serve as a resource guide to aging adults, other students, and those interested in home modifications. Simple home modifications that aging adults should consider doing to their homes were evaluated and recommended. Local community resources, government resources, and internet sites were identified and short explanations with contact information were provided. Professionals who work with aging adults provided recommendations to be implemented in aging adult's homes. Before and after pictures of simple modifications with brief descriptions are provided. At the conclusion of this project limitations to the project were mentioned and future research recommendations were made.
