Aging in Place
If you love where you live, you don't have to leave it just because you're getting older or have different needs than you used to. Consider modifying your home with additions such as:
- Ramps or stepless stairways
- Adding handlebars in the bathroom
- Wider hallways, doors and entries
If you're interested in making modifications like these to your current home, search MORe's list of affiliate partners to find a contractor in your area. If you're searching for a new home that will allow you to age in place, consult your REALTOR®. They can help you find homes that are suitable for aging in place, and can share details on:
- Nearby transportation options
- Nearby healthcare facilities
- Local entertainment, shops and places to socialize
- Home features and likelihood to need certain types of maintenance
With a growing number of adults age 65 or older, more neighborhoods are planning for a population that will age in place. If you want to learn more about how your neighborhood can help, read about planning for senior housing in your municipality.
