The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines aging in place as: ... “the ability to live in one's own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level.”
With Aging In Place we must consider the aging process and how it impacts our lifestyle and life's quality. Successful aging in place requires acceptance of change in order to maximize life's quality and lifestyles - consider the impact of the items listed to the right, today and in 5, 10, 15 or more years...we all need to consider "change plans"...
For many, arranging your home for a safe environment can be spread out over time. Unless there is a traumatic life altering accident or illness, home modifications can be completed over time given there is an effective actuated plan.
With Relocation, all or most costs are up front and you have to find a location that already has all your Aging In Place lifestyle and life quality needs built-in or there will be added expense to make modifications.
