Aging in Place: Articles and Resources

Many aging adults understandably prefer to remain in their own home, or to “age in place,” yet sometimes health or mobility complications exist that make certain tasks difficult. For those seniors wishing to “age in place,” there are a number of ways to adapt a senior’s home to make daily tasks like bathing, opening doors, and ascending staircases safe and easy.

Below is a collection of articles and resources created by Comfort Keepers to provide information about Aging in Place and related topics.
