According to the AARP, over 80 percent of seniors in America prefer to stay in their homes as they age; they have determined to “age in place.” A majority of seniors prefer that arrangement, hoping to maintain their quality of life as they age. Their surroundings are familiar, and the layout, the furniture, and the memories that are present offer seniors a sense of security and comfort. They are familiar with their neighborhood and community, and they may live close to family. Aging in place is especially helpful in preserving the seniors’ feelings of independence.If and when it becomes necessary, helpful assistance from home healthcare aides can help make aging in place possible.
