How do you adapt your home as a care setting for your loved one? This Aging in Place Workbook from MetLife is a good guide.
Excerpt from the workbook:
“Regardless of the cause, changes in the ability to live independently require decisions regarding the type of care we are to receive and the setting in which it will be delivered. Most people want to remain in their own homes even when they may be no longer able to live independently. This tool provides guidance and assistance in assessing your care needs, suggests areas to consider in determining whether they can be met in your home, and provides resources for taking the steps needed to make it possible.”
Also, consider engaging an Certified Aging in Place Specialist. See our list of Charlottesville-area resources.
