According to a survey conducted by AARP in 2014, 87% of adults over the age of 65 want to age in place, and 80% believe their current residence is the place they will always live. When it comes to aging in place, there are appropriate questions to ask. Is the home a safe place for a senior to live alone? Are family caregivers capable of providing adequate care? What obstacles are there to making the home livable and accessible for the long term?
With the right help and equipment, physical residences can be adapted to be both safe and accessible, making it possible for many seniors to age in the comfort of their own homes.
