Aging In Place Overview

As people grow older, everyday tasks and activities can become more and more
difficult.  Things around the house that used to be easy start to become frustrating,
or even dangerous.  When it becomes too difficult or dangerous to continue to live
in their current houses, most people realize it's time to make some changes.

People often assume that the only option is to move into a new home or apartment
that is designed for assisted living.  Such a move can be hard for many reasons,
and most people would prefer to remain at home.

Now, thanks to improvements in adaptive design, technology, and know-how, you
have a better option.  Changes must be made, but that does not have to mean
moving..  Instead, upgrades can be made to your current home to make it safe,
accessible, and comfortable to live in for years to come.
