The Aging In Place Phenomenon
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines Aging in Place as "the ability to live in one's own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level."
As the older generations age, they want to maintain their independence and take advantage of improvements in such critical areas as health care, safety, transportation and mobility.
The phenomenon is real as AARP reports that 87% of those 65+ want to stay in their current home and community as they age.
The desire to Age in Place may require assistance for Activities of Daily Living (ADLs).
Of course, the home itself may need some work with non-slip flooring, shower and tub redesign and even improved knobs, handles and railings.
