Aging in Place
"Aging in place" is growing older without having to move. According to the Journal of Housing for the Elderly, it is not having to move from one's present residence in order to secure necessary support services in response to changing needs. Most of our participants live with their families. Aging in Place supports the notion that older persons should be able to maintain a desirable lifestyle by participating in their communities, remaining independent as their health allows, having access to educational, cultural, and recreational facilities, feeling safe, and living in an intergenerational environment.
Some 70% of seniors spend the rest of their life in the place where they celebrated their 65th birthday. Our programs are designed to help them prolong or avoid the necessity of moving out of their homes into nursing homes.
