What does “Aging in place” mean?
“Aging in place” is a term used to capture the gradual process of adjusting our everyday life for age-related losses, including the loss of mobility and sense of balance. It encompasses all activities that allow an individual to maintain as much choice as possible in a residential setting, lifestyle, and functional ability while striving for optimal health and safety.
Aging is inevitable, but it doesn’t mean that someone will stop doing just about anything after they turn 65! Aging in place allows older adults to continue living in their homes and communities for as long as possible by improving accessibility, safety, and decreasing isolation.
