What is your concept of aging in place? Most envision continuing to live safely, independently, and comfortably in their own home and the familiar surroundings of a supportive community.

 

What does this mean? You may not have to sell your current home, buy a new one or even move into assisted living. It may be possible for your to stay in your current home by updating it with the necessary physical revisions to keep you safe and functioning at optimal levels to live out your life there.

Life-enriching aging in place is not a passive activity. It doesn't result from just staying put and adding up the years; according to AARP research, 8 out of 10 adults will experience future special housing needs. Successful aging in place is a process of taking stock of current and future needs, thinking through the options, evaluating the house and the community, and developing strategies. The process starts with asking the question: what will it take for you to age comfortably and safely in this house and in this community?
