Adapt your home to suit your needs - class Sept 18
A seminar on the many ways that people can use everyday items to adapt their homes and maintain their independence – Dish Towel or Door Opener? – will be offered at 6 p.m. Tuesday, September 18, at the Fond du Lac Public Library. The program is free and open to the public; no registration required.
Chris Wales, of Clarity Care, and Sandy Tryon and Claudette Auman, of the Fond du Lac Aging and Disability Resource Center, will talk about how the creative use of everyday and specialty items can help people stay in their homes. Is it a dish towel or a door opener? A cordless screwdriver or a way to open blinds? Examples and suggestions will be provided, and there will be time for questions and answers.
