Aging in place is defined as the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level.
At the heart of it, successful aging in place is about responsibility; to yourself, your family and community. It means you are making the best choices you can so that your quality of life, and the lives of your family and friends, are not negatively affected.
Planning properly for all the stages of your retirement years is the most loving thing you can do for yourself and the people around you. It keeps them from having to be put in a position where they feel like they have to protect you and from having to make hard choices with no clear direction from you.
Pre-planning aging in place from an earlier age.
Plan ahead and start thinking about how you want to live as you age and what steps you need to take to achieve that lifestyle. Consider the unexpected. Knowing what you would do if you developed a disability, had a sudden onset of a chronic illness, or had a change in resources.
