Aging in Place

A significant concern as people grow older is that they may have to leave their home. This would mean leaving behind a comfortable setting familiar community and many memories. In addition a certain amount of control is lost when one leaves home. This "control" provides the underpinning to our feelings of dignity, quality of life and independence. One's home is a strong element in that sense of security.

Most American seniors desire to stay in their homes for the rest of their lives. In fact an AARP survey found this number to be greater than 80% of seniors. This "stay at home" approach is also known as "Aging in Place"

"Aging in place" successfully requires planning. To accommodate physical, mental, and psychological changes that may accompany aging, physical changes should be made in your home.
