What is Aging in Place?

aging in place, accessibility design, safety, aging, home modifications,

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines Aging in Place as the ability to live in ones home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income or ability level. 

According to AARP, 90% of people over 65 want to remain at home as long as possible, and 80% believe they will always live at their current home. 

What to Consider When Aging in Place:

 

Medical Factors

Do you have medical factors that may require an alternative form of mobility now or in the future?

Is your home accessible for this type of mobility (walker, wheelchair, power chair)?

Recent Falls

Have you had any recent or reoccurring falls in or around the home?

Are there areas of the home that can be modified to prevent this (steps, rugs, thresholds)?

Emergency Scenarios

In case of an emergency, can paramedics reach every part of the home quickly and effectively (clutter, doorway width, stairs)?

Financially, are you in a good position to make changes to your home? 

According to the American Health Care Association, the national median cost of assisted living is  $4,500/monthly. Long term care cost $8,300/monthly
