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.”
