Aging in Place Safety Tips

Many older adults want to remain in their homes as long as possible as they age. This concept, known as “aging in place,” means living in one’s home safely, comfortably, and as independently as possible regardless of age or ability levels. How can adult-children and their parents assess whether the parents’ home is safe and accessible? What remodeling and modifications are possible and appropriate to help parents age in place? How do you find someone to help with remodeling and modifications?
