Aging Americans are living active, longer lives. The ability to live out their older years at home is becoming a very popular trend. 101 Mobility helps seniors achieve this goal.
What is Aging in Place?
There’s a new trend taking place throughout the senior community: It’s called “aging in place.” Simply put, seniors are overwhelmingly choosing to stay in their homes, as opposed to being transplanted to a nursing home or assisted living facility.
The National Association of Home Builders describes “aging in place” 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—and the reassurance of being able to call a house a ‘home’ for a lifetime.”
According to a study performed by the AARP (American Association of Retired People), 90% of people prefer to stay at home as they age and 82% prefer to live at home even if they require consistent care. Meanwhile, only 9% said they desired to move to an outside facility and 4% said they preferred to move in with a family member.
