180621 Aging-in-Place (in Your Current Home) part 2 of 3

180621 Aging-in-Place (in Your Current Home) by Harry Cline

Aging in place means that you live in a standalone house. Ideally, this can be the home you are most comfortable in. But living at home when you have age-related impairments means making a few changes to your house and your lifestyle. A quick look on AssitedLiving.org shows that some of the most important physical changes to your property include widened doorways, a modified kitchen and bath, ramps installed on the exterior, and smart home devices.

Something else you want to consider when you plan to live at home is outsourcing some tasks, such as lawn care and housekeeping. Depending on your overall health and mobility level, you also need a home care aide, which may set you back $22 per hour more.
