Have you been concerned about your (or friends or relatives) ability to remain safely in your home as you age?   Would you like to learn about techniques and improvements to make to your home to make it safer and more convenient?  Then this workshop is for you.

Part 2 of the workshop is a presentation and discussion on how to hire a contractor.  Have you ever put off having work done on your home because you were reluctant or nervous about hiring an honest, competent contractor?  If so, come hear a licensing specialist from the State Board of Contractors provide solid advice on how to go about doing so and pitfalls to avoid.

In addition to the presentations, there will be exhibitors, hands-on demonstrations, door prizes, and light refreshments.
