Importance of Home Environment:

The home environment plays a crucial role in supporting aging in place. Modifying the living space to accommodate changing needs becomes essential.  Features such as wider doorways for wheelchairs, non-slip flooring, grab bars in bathrooms, walk-in showers, user-friendly lighting, video doorbells, and adjusting counter heights, just to name a few. 


Advancements in technology have revolutionized aging in place.  Smart home devices, wearable health monitors, and telehealth services empower seniors to manage their health and safety while staying at home. 

Community Involvement:

Community engagement is crucial for us as we age.  Community centers, senior clubs, and volunteer programs foster social connections and a sense of belonging.
