Creative Use of Extra Space in Your Home

HouseBrooklineCAN is sponsoring a workshop for seniors and their families on how to put extra space in their homes to good use. The workshop is scheduled for June 1 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm at the Senior Center. Len Fishman, a senior housing expert and Director of the Gerontology Institute at UMass Boston, will provide an overview of the possibilities. Staff of the Brookline Building, Planning, and Health Departments will be on hand with information on what the Town allows people to do with their homes and what obligations homeowners have if they rent space to others. Some Brookline seniors who are already making creative use of the space in their homes will share their experiences. The workshop is designed to stimulate thinking and provide answers to questions. This event is free.  You are encouraged to register at 617-730-2777.
