Making Aging in Place a RealityThe concept of “aging in place” has gained traction as more seniors express the desire to live independently in their homes for as long as possible. 

But what steps should you take to make this a viable option? Here are a few to get you started:

  • Home Modifications: Simple updates like installing grab bars or removing trip hazards can make your home safer. For more extensive needs, consider home renovations like widening doorways or installing a stairlift.
  • Community Support: Many communities offer services tailored for seniors. From meal delivery services to senior-friendly transportation options, these can significantly aid your independence.
  • Legal Preparations: An essential aspect of aging in place is having a robust estate plan, including healthcare directives and durable power of attorney for finances. 
  • Stay Social: Isolation can be a concern when aging in place. Look for community events or online groups to keep your social life active.
