While many seniors appreciate living in assisted living communities, your loved one does not necessarily have to move just because they’re older and need extra help. Most older adults prefer to age in place in their lifelong homes and familiar neighborhoods. California Department of Aging states two-thirds of older adults said that they would have been able to stay with their living situation and remain more independent if they made modifications to their home. Home modifications allow for aging in place to be possible for seniors with disabilities or those who need extra assistance. According to research by the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, home modifications and repairs could prevent up to 50% of all home accidents among seniors, including falls that take place in older homes. You can protect your loved one’s safety while allowing them to keep their independence by making some changes around the home.
