Meet the Speakers:
Our summit speakers are joining us with a WEALTH of knowledge regarding the not-so-secret ways of helping to keep people in their homes for as long as possible. Research shows that older adults overwhelmingly would like to stay in their homes as they manage their twilight years. Research also shows that there is a major mismatch between that desire and the reality. Older adults are facing a lot of challenges. Less than 1% of homes in the US are wheelchair accessible, adults are living longer and with more chronic health conditions, and nearly 1 and 4 adults are falling every day. We at the Power of Home summit not only want to support the older adults in our lives, but also those with and without disabilities who frankly, face way to many issues in an environment that is supposed to promote health, safety, well-being, and happiness. Whether it's a pregnant mom worried about crossing the tub threshold, or a 85-year-old gentleman who'd like to fetch his mail each morning, our homes should support our wants and needs. We've curated a group of professionals who will help educate us on how to do that.

Occupational Therapy Student
Chelsia joined the Empowered Homes team as an occupational therapy fieldwork student in the summer of 2021. She is on track to graduate this fall, and she plans to work alongside Gretchen to disrupt the inaccessible housing market as it stands.
Why should I attend?
"Anyone can become disabled at any time, and I don’t say that to be negative—I say that to emphasize that elevating overall accessibility and giving those living with disabilities more comfort and freedom raises our society as a whole."

"People are rediscovering homes now as the ‘safe’ place. The time has come to offer programs that incentivize stakeholders, from builders to homeowners to home supply stores to prepare homes to serve their residents throughout their lifespan."
