aging in placeWhat is meant by the term "aging in place"? Simply, it describes a cultural shift in that those who are aging are overwhelmingly preferring to stay at home, rather than be transplanted to nursing homes or assisted living facilities. The National Association of Home Builders describes the term as: Remaining in one’s home safely, independently and comfortably, regardless of age, income or ability level. It means the pleasure of living in a familiar environment throughout one’s maturing years and the ability to enjoy the familiar daily rituals and the special events that enrich all our lives. It means the reassurance of being able to call a house a “home” for a lifetime. (National Association of Home Builders brochure; Link)

The American Association of Retired People (AARP) conducted a study which showed that 90% of people prefer to stay at home as they age; 82% prefer to live at home even if they require consistent care; only 9% desire to move to an outside facility; and even less - 4%, would prefer to move in with relatives.
