Most older adults prefer to remain living in their own homes as long as possible. Adult children often worry about their parents’ well-being and encourage them to move closer to resources like family caregivers, health care, transportation, and social activities. This can cause conflict and stress for families.
Creating a plan for successful aging in place can increase the likelihood that older adults living at home will remain safe, well, and happy, and can also reassure worried loved ones and therefore improve strained relationships.
