What is aging-in-place?
Aging-in-place means remaining in one’s house safely, independently and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or functional ability level. It means the pleasure of living in a familiar environment throughout one’s life, and to continue enjoying the routine daily rituals and sentimental memories that enrich all our lives. It means the reassurance of being able to call a house a “home” for a lifetime.
Aging-in-place has become the popular choice in lifestyle for older adults. If you’re like most Americans, you want to continue living in your current home and community for as long as possible. As you age, there are good reasons for choosing to do so. Studies show that seniors who remain in their own house add 4 years to their life expectancy. An AARP study found the 89% of the people surveyed preferred to remain in their own house and communities rather than move. The California Healthcare Foundation reported similar findings.
Why hire a Certified Aging-In-Place Specialists?
CAPS professionals have the answers to your questions. They have been taught the strategies and techniques for designing and building aesthetically enriching, barrier-free living environments. The CAPS program goes beyond design to address the codes and standards, common remodeling expenditures and projects, product ideas and resources needed to provide comprehensive and practical aging-in-place solutions. CAPS graduates pledge to uphold a code of ethics and are required to maintain their designations by continuing education programs and participating in community service projects.
A cost effective alternative to an assisted living facility.
In the past, when someone had concerns about living by themselves, it generally meant that it was time to move in with a family member or to a costly assisted living facility. Not anymore. Seniors are remaining at home and living independently with a little help where needed.
An AARP study found that a great number of those respondents said a parent, spouse, or another household member had difficulty walking, bathing, negotiation stairs, or getting into or out of bed or a chair; and the use of assistive devices and home adaptations helped them get around and remain self-sufficient.
When needed, a personal care aide can provide in-home assistance for much less cost then boarding in an institutional setting.
