Staying in your own home is an attractive option for many seniors. You can maintain your independence and live in a place you enjoy near friends and family.

Being able to stay in a familiar environment, enjoying your daily routines such as reading the paper or having coffee in your favorite chair are pleasures that can’t be measured. And living in your current home can be a cost-effective alternative to assisted or independent living.

However, your home may need some modifications to meet your changing needs. During the maturing years, changes in vision, hearing and mobility can require adjustments to your home to support a safe and secure future. Adjustments to lighting, flooring, bath and kitchen areas, and the home exterior may be needed and should be assessed by a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist.
