Maintaining Senior Independence

By Mary Johnston

Americans are more active and living longer. According to the National Institute for Aging, 89% of Americans over age 50 wish to remain in their homes as long as possible. Reasons they wish to age independently include:

  • They feel independent living in their current home
  • Their current home is conveniently located
  • They feel safe in their home
  • They’re familiar with their neighborhood
  • They live close to family 

If you work with seniors who are planning their future, or if you have an aging loved one, it’s important to know the options available to help keep their independence and meet their needs.

It’s important to understand how to prepare to age safely wherever you call home.
