Aging in place is a term used to describe a senior living in the residence of their choice as they age, while being able to have any services (or other support) they might need over time as their needs change, for as long as they are able. To be clear, though, aging in place is one phase of a person’s life. It is not the answer to anything. Rather, one period of time that an elderly person can enjoy and still get the things that they require.
