Eldercare

Eldercare is another word for elder care, and this is the practice of caring for the special needs of aging adults. Including home care, assisted living, nursing homes, and more, this is any type of care for the elderly.

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.
