Senior Living: What is Aging in Place?

Aging in place is a term used to describe a person living in the residence of their choice, for as long as they are able, as they age. This includes being able to have any services they might need over time as their needs change. To be clear: the act of aging in place takes place during a period of time in an elderly person’s life where they can have the things that they need in their daily life, while maintaining their quality of life. The reason this distinction is important is because many people think aging in place will fix the problems they have in their lives. The only problems that can be fixed while aging in place are the ones that a person has planned for. Below are links to resources for those of us who are or will be planning for aging in place. For information on real estate for seniors please contact me, via the contact page on my site, directly to discuss your specific needs.
