We present descriptive findings from a North Carolina study of 30 limited-resource older homeowners who want to age in place, and we relate those findings to opportunities for outreach education. We grouped the findings from extensive participant interviews into five key areas. For two of those areas--health conditions and financial situation--critical educational content is needed. In addition, by understanding issues and attitudes related to the other key areas--neighborhood, family, and church/religion--Extension and other outreach professionals can develop and market educational programs that better address older adults' needs.
