aging in place

What is aging in place?

Aging in place refers to a decision individuals make to remain in their homes or their communities as they grow older instead of opting for relocation to long-term care facilities such as assisted living and nursing homes.

The decision to remain independent and at home will likely involve consideration of in-home care provided by caregivers who can assist with individuals who might have difficulty with activities of daily living.
