What is aging in place?
Aging in Place means remaining in one’s home safely, independently and comfortably, regardless of age, income or ability level. It means the pleasure of living in a familiar environment throughout one’s maturing years, and the ability to enjoy the familiar daily rituals and the special events that enrich all our lives. It means the reassurance of being able to call a house a “home” for a lifetime. ( Definition by NAHB)


It can simply mean evaluating your current home for accessibility and safety issues, determining your current and possible future needs, and making the necessary changes or enhancements so that you, your spouse or loved ones can live comfortably in the home for years to come.
