Aging in Place Booklet Provides Valuable Information for Improved Senior Living

The Plough Foundation has created a new booklet to address key issues related to the aging population in Shelby County. The “Aging in Place and Universal Design: Making Your Home Accessible, No Matter Your Age or Ability” booklet provides information about home design, modifications, financing, hiring qualified professionals and local resources that are available to help seniors age in place with the quality of life they deserve. Please visit to view the information or to download a copy of the booklet.
The Plough Foundation has also partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis, MLGW and Service Over Self (SOS) on an Aging in Place program designed to improve the physical accessibility of homes and to make critical repairs for senior citizens so they can remain in their homes longer. Work for this program has begun and MLGW’s role in the overall partnership is to inspect qualified homes, identify weatherization measures and oversee the work of contractors to ensure improvements meet energy-efficiency standards.
For more information about the Aging in Place program including qualifications for assistance, visit or call 901-322-3500. Please note: the next application date will be Tuesday, June 2, 2015.
