Meet A Home Contractor Who Helps Older People Age In Place (NPR)

NPR’s “All Things Considered” highlighted USC Leonard Davis School student Leon Watts, who is 66 and works to modify homes in Los Angeles for older adults. “When you can’t ski anymore, you don’t golf anymore, your friends aren’t around anymore, and your kids have grown up and they’ve gone, the only familiar thing in a person’s life is their home,” Watts said. The story also quoted George Shannon of the USC Leonard Davis School about the unique perspective Watts brings to the classroom.
