Notes and References
While many people love to live independently in their own home, to age in place may require some modifications to our homes, the use of assistive technology, and some helpful government funded programs.
Don't forget that there is funding from the state or federal governments if you are interested in making your home more accessible!
We are all getting older and may experience signs and symptoms of aging even in our late 30s and early 40s. Therefore, we should consider making changes in our homes sooner rather than later in order to make it our lifelong home. It is always better to be prepared than to react to a crisis.
