Certified Aging-in-Place Specialists in Fairfield County

What is Aging in Place?

Aging-in-place is the ability to live in one’s own home safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age or ability level. It means the freedom to live in a familiar environment and the reassurance of calling your house a “home” for a lifetime.

Why is Aging in Place Important?

There is an increased demand to stay comfortable at home instead of being moved to a nursing home. In fact, a recent AARP survey found that 88% of respondents (all of whom were 50 years or older) claimed that it was extremely important to have services that allowed for them to “age in place.”

As we grow older, many will need assistance with tasks but still want to maintain a level of control and independence. Most homes in Fairfield County will require modifications to meet the goals of safety, accessibility, independence and longevity.
