Almost everyone prefers to age in place - to remain living in their own home as long as possible. To remain successfully independent at home, it's best to be proactive.
This starts with making a plan for successful aging in your own home.
There are many services, products and resources that can fill the gaps created when an older adult experiences physical or cognitive problems, loses a longtime life partner, or simply wants to make life easier. Creating a plan for successful aging in place can increase the likelihood that older adults living at home will remain safe, well, and happy.
