Aging in place

Aging in place is when you choose to stay in your own home as you grow older. While some aging adults choose to live in nursing homes or assisted living facilities, others prefer to keep their independence as long as possible by staying in their homes. While aging in place can be a great option, there are unique concerns like hiring a caretaker, creating a long-term plan, and preparing for retirement.
