Aging in place means remaining in one’s home safely, independently and comfortably, regardless of age, income or ability level. It means the pleasure of living in a familiar environment throughout one’s maturing years and the ability to enjoy the familiar daily rituals and the special events that enrich our lives. It means the reassurance of being able to call a house a “home” for a lifetime.
To age-in-place, you will probably need to modify your house as you get older to increase access and maneuverability. These modifications range from installing bath and shower grab bars and adjusting countertop heights to creating multi-functional first floor master suites and adding private elevators.
