As people age, many of them are able to live independently in the comfort of their own home. ”Aging in place,” as it is becoming commonly called, has many benefits.
• Home Is Where The Heart Is: Studies show that 90% of people prefer to stay in their house as they grow older. Staying in your home offers familiarity, comfort, and privacy.
• Celebrate Freedom: Nothing compares to the freedom you have in your own home. Independence has been said to help both emotional and mental health. You are free to live on your own schedule and accept visitors at any time.
• Money Matters: Aging in place can be more cost-effective than alternative options like senior living communities. Making minor safety updates to your home or hiring weekly or seasonal help can cost less than round-the-clock care. •
