There’s a growing ‘aging in place’ movement, whose members want to continue living in their own homes for as long as possible. But that doesn’t mean keeping everything the same, until a fall or injury (or the threat of one) forces a change in residence. Rather, wise aging in place involves making your home into a space where you can live safely and independently for years to come.
If the home you love gives you joy, and you’re determined to stay there, welcome to the movement! Use the 6 signs below to test how well you have prepared, and see what more you can do to age in place with wisdom and foresight.
