What does it mean to Age in Place? The CDC defines Aging in Place as “the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level.” According to the AARP, nearly 80% of older adults want to stay in their current homes. However, there are many factors to consider when evaluating this option. Successful outcomes require planning and resources.
Regardless of where you currently reside, some changes will need to be made to accommodate physical and mental declines as you age. Key considerations include…
- Home Modifications
- In-Home Care
- Cost of Services
- Communication Tools
