Aging in Place is a term used to describe a person living in their home of choice for as long as they are able, as they age. With careful planning, simple changes to the home, and coordination of community or family support services, seniors can remain safe and independent for many years.
As we age, our bodies and abilities change. Older adults might experience some or all of the following:
- Reduced vision
- Decreased muscle strength or endurance
- Reduced mental processing capabilities
- Increased risk of falls due to balance
- Increased risk of illness
- Reduced hearing
- Decreased mobility
These changes happen to most everyone in one form or another. Knowing that this is the case and choosing to have a plan to Age In Place means seniors will have a greater chance to control their quality of life and independence.
A.I.P. Help is trained to evaluate the environment of seniors and the disabled to create a plan that may include immediate concerns and long-term considerations. Call for in-home consultation or assessment.
