Aging in Place: Do You Have a Plan?
Aging in Place is a rapidly growing lifestyle option for Americans approaching or beyond retirement age. It facilitates remaining in the home of your choice for as long as you would like as opposed to relocating to a nursing home or other medical facility.
It wasn't always possible to do this. Aging in place is more common now because the services required to live a secure and safe life are now available to senior citzens in the home.
Successful aging in place requires a plan. Creating that plan will take a bit of time--about an hour. But you don’t have to do it all in one sitting. You can save your responses, take a break, and come back. You might want to involve your family or trusted advisors in this process. Make it fun, make it an occasion. Invite them to join you around the dining room table and answer the questions together.
You're two simple steps away from having your plan to age in place.
