Description

This program will explore ways that individuals, family members, and professionals can prepare older adults to live safely, independently, and comfortably at home and in community as they age. The program expands the concept of aging in place to encompass aging in community. Preparing to maximize wellbeing while aging requires much more than installing ramps and handrails. This program is intended to help learners consider how to plan for aging in place, regardless of financial circumstances. To live safely, independently, and comfortably requires not only quality housing, but also access to health and community services, social connections, and other resources. The speaker will provide information about several aspects of aging in place, such as living arrangements, safety, home modifications, technology, and affordability.
