Planning for your future? Research has shown that seniors who are able to stay at home enjoy a greater sense of independence and comfort, not to mention better health outcomes despite the lower cost of care. Today, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Ogden, one of the area’s leading home remodeling contractors, takes a closer look at some of the unique advantages of aging in place.
Most of us will experience a gradual decline in our physical and cognitive capabilities as we get older. For some, the difference is significant enough to make daily living difficult, making the move to a senior care community a more sensible option.
Yet those who are able and willing to age in place should be encouraged to do so safely and comfortably. Aging in place offers seniors more control over their day-to-day routines, which fosters personal independence and dignity, both of which are closely linked to health and happiness in the elderly.
Safe & Healthy Environment
Modifying the home to create a safe, independent living situation tailored to one’s changing needs can sometimes be healthier than moving to a nursing facility or similar communal environment. Even the process of moving can take an emotional and physical toll on an elderly person and contribute to poor health.
Proximity to Loved Ones
There’s no place like home! It’s where most of us feel the greatest sense of comfort and security, two things that contribute to our quality of life at any age. When you age in place, you’re able to spend your later years surrounded by familiar people and places. There simply is no substitute.
