Can You Age in Place in Your Beloved Home?

179218923The reasons to consider aging at home are tangible, relevant and emotional. The most important for most people is that your home is your comfort zone, your memories and because accepting a lifestyle change can be difficult. Depending upon how you view your retirement years, you may feel that a known and comfortable place is the best place for you to be. While that may be the case, it is important to make plans in the event caring for yourself becomes too difficult.
