On July 4, 1776, the thirteen colonies claimed their independence from England, an event which eventually led to the formation of the United States. Each year on July 4th, also known as Independence Day, Americans celebrate this historic event with pride and gratitude. Independence Day is a patriotic holiday for celebrating the positive aspects of the United States. Above all, people in the United States express and give thanks for the freedom and liberties. The Statue of Liberty is a national monument that is associated with Independence Day. Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States.
This year Independence Day also marks the 3-Year Anniversary of Age Safe® America!

Plan for independence!
We all want to live safely, independently and comfortably, regardless of our age or disability. Whether you are living by yourself or with a family member, you can design your own additions or home modifications that will help you continue living independently. Many homes are not designed to give you that freedom as you age, but trained advisors and qualified contractors are there to help you plan and create the flexibility you want.
