INdependence At Home Network

A helping hand to make homes safer and improve quality of life

The INdependence At Home Network is a coalition of organizations serving the greater Indianapolis area who are focused on making homes safer and improving the quality of life for older adults and people with disabilities.

Collectively, the organizations do about 1,000 home modifications annually. Through the partnership, they hope to increase that number and focus on high-risk neighborhoods. The goal is to empower people to stay in their homes as long as they safely can live there.

As people age, they often struggle with home maintenance and need accessibility modifications to prevent falls. Those modifications can be as simple as installing handrails, grab bars and ramps.

“Our organizations decided that by sharing our knowledge, wisdom and best practices, we could improve our services, and it allows us to do more together, rather than working alone.”
