Advantages of Aging in Place

Advantages of Aging in Place

The advantages of aging in place are numerous, and keep aging individuals’ quality of life as high as possible, often for longer than in a nursing home or other assisted care facility.

Aging in place allows seniors to remain wherever they currently reside, and letting them continue to live their life. There are many benefits of allowing people to age in place, including:

  1. Familiarity. Seniors are usually familiar with their current surroundings. Being able to remain there is going to help them as they continue to age.
  2. Comfort. There’s no place like home. Being at home is going to be the most comfortable option that a senior citizen can have. They have their own surroundings and belongings, and will feel the most comfortable there.
  3. Independence. Being able to be at home to age means that seniors will have an opportunity to remain more independent. They will be able to continue doing many of the things they have always done and enjoy engaging in.
  4. Mentality. Where we are can often impact how we feel mentally. If a senior stays home to age they are likely to feel much better and happier than one that has been put into a nursing home, for example.

It’s no secret that today’s seniors are living much longer, healthier lives than generations past. But seniors aging in place may need some additional assistance; everything from transportation to home care. So assisted living is a great choice if your loved one needs help with the activities of daily living.
