Most people go through their lives each day without being aware of the fact that the world in general has been designed for able-bodied, right-handed young adults, with average height and weight, perfect sight and hearing, and the ability to verbally communicate their needs to another human being.
Aging in Place is the concept that you can (and should be able to) stay in your residence and current living location for the remainder of your life, regardless of changes to your physical, cognitive, or other changes to your body and abilities that may occur with age.
I believe that Aging in Place is a choice. I choose to share this information, as I have a passion for "Empowering the Mature Market".
Deciding you wish to age in place means you are choosing how you want to spend your retirement years, how you want your home to be set up, what your health care choices will be, which types of assistance are right for you, and what your wishes are for major life events such as sickness, housing transitions, and financial decisions.
Making these choices gives you control over your independence, quality of life and dignity. Most importantly to note, aging in place does not mean you have to do everything yourself; that's where the plan comes in. It means you get to plan how your needs are met, who meets them and when.
