Why is Aging in Place (at home) important?
When we get older, health and mobility problems tend to be episodic, chronic and progressive. Most organized senior housing (nursing home, assisted living, independent living) facilities are organized to care for folks at certain levels of need. Often times, this care is too much or too little for a specific individual. When a person is thrust into an environment which promotes a generic level of care, then this person is usually required to move multiple times. Moving multiple times between care facilities is often disorienting, disturbing and highly undesirable. These moves not only affect the individual but also their family members. Studies have shown that over 80% of individuals over age 45 say they would rather remain in their own homes even when they need assistance. In addition, national polls taken reveal that older folks fear losing their independence by about 8 times as much as they fear death. Anything that we can do to help our elders remain independent……just feels right and is right!
What is Aging in Place?
Aging in place is the ability to stay in one’s home even when age-related or health-related changes may make it difficult to do so.
