Many aging adults would like to be in control of how they age. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, one in nine people older than age 65 wishes to remain in their own home for as long as possible. However, many of these people have not seriously considered whether their home is properly set up to age in place. Deciding whether or not to remain in your home can be a tough decision; however, aging adults can be empowered to decide where to age. There are tools and resources to help older adults and family caregivers start the discussion and begin planning. One resource is the Home Your Own Way public education program, developed by Home Instead, Inc., franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care network. Register for this web seminar to learn about ways professionals can help aging adults and their families decide where it is best for them to age: in their home or elsewhere.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Describe if an aging adult’s home is ready for aging in place;
  • List issues to consider if an individual wants to stay in the home;
  • Review home safety hazards that could put an older adult at risk;
  • Discover common home renovations for aging in place; and,
  • List conversation starters and resources for older adults and their family members.
