Aging In Place | A Guide To Independent Home Living

Posted by Michele Reed on Jan 29, 2021 8:00:00 AM

What does aging in place mean? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, aging in place is "the ability to live in one's own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level." As we age, it's essential to consider what will make you feel the most comfortable living in your own home. In this blog post, we'll be guiding you on how to live comfortably and independently inside your own home!

1. Consider your surroundings

 

Consider your surroundings for a moment. Do you feel confident in your environment? The community you're living in? We all want to feel comfortable in our own homes. Especially as we age. As we get older, our household needs change. It's something most everyone will experience in life. We find that what once was useful and convenient will not be anymore. That's okay! That's one of the many ways we help our clients. When we sit down at our initial consultation, we go through all your concerns and your vision for your home. We take our expertise and combine ways to make your vision and dream happen in a way that is convenient for you! 

2. Switching Old To New

 

Certain areas in our home become less and less convenient over the years. Things that can be dangerous or uncomfortable to deal with on a day to day bases. For example, going up and down the stairs, reaching tall cabinets, or standing up in the shower. These are areas that we help with! With the right team of people behind you, these are areas that can be fixed to match your current lifestyle needs. Find the independence you crave once again without compromising the elegance of a well-designed home. There are certainly many ways to make your home feel luxurious and convenient all in one package.

3. Finding The Right Home Care
