Community Action is pleased to announce our Older Adult Home Modification Program (OAHMP), a new initiative designed for eligible lower-income homeowners, age 62 and older, living in Franklin and Hampshire Counties and the communities of Athol, Petersham, Phillipston and Royalston, looking to maintain independence and lead safe and productive lives in their homes.
Through this program, lower-income older adults can improve general home safety through no-cost modifications that reduce the risk of falling, increase accessibility, and improve the home's functional abilities.
If you currently receive Fuel Assistance and could benefit from the installation of grab bars, railings, temporary ramps, tub/shower transfer benches, raised toilet seats with hand rails, and stair steps, please contact us!
To ensure the highest quality programming, Community Action is partnering with the team at LifePath, who have been providing services to older adults in support of independent living in our area for over 45 years.
