What is aging in place?
Aging in place is a term used to describe a person living in the home of 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.
Aging brings changes to us all. As a person begins their aging in place experience, it is important for them to consider and plan for their current needs and future concerns. As we age, our bodies and abilities change. Older adults might experience some or all of the following:
- Reduced vision
- Decreased muscle strength or endurance
- Reduced mental processing capabilities
- Increased risk of falls due to balance
- Increased risk of illness
- Reduced hearing
- Decreased mobility
These changes happen to most everyone in one form or another. Knowing that this is the case and choosing to have a plan to Age In Place means you will have a greater chance to control your quality of life and independence.
