What Do Senior Citizens Need To Do To Age In Place?

I have a lot of clients who love their current home, the location, their privacy and their independence and, if physically possible, stay in their home. This article explores many options and offers solutions that may work individually.

Most Canadian seniors would prefer to stay in their homes for as long as possible, what is referred to as aging in place, rather than in an assisted living facility, according to recent studies that have come out this year.

Below, are some practical tips on how to age in place, so you can continue living life on your terms.

How to age in place peacefully

Compared to an assisted living facility or retirement community, aging in place in your own home has several benefits, including:

  •  You don’t have to downsize your home or possessions
  •  The comfort of living in a home where you’ve built memories
  •  No rules or schedules to adhere to
  •  Privacy

That being said, aging in place also requires seniors to be more responsible for themselves. If you’re unable to handle certain responsibilities on your own, you may need to hire assistance. Aging in place is certainly possible, though. Here are some things to consider and plan for if you want to retire and age in place.
