If you are in a relatively rural area you should check with the U.S. department of Agriculture. They offer a surprising number of loans and grants to seniors for home purchase and repairs. You could be eligible for a guaranteed loan or a grant (up to $7500) for this type of work. Take a look at the Rural Repair and Rehabilition program.

You could also take a look to see if the organizationNeighborWorks is in your area. It's possible they could refer you to some help. Another place to contact would be a local office for the Department of Housing and Urban Development. If they can't help directly I'm sure they could provide some good advice.
