Aging in place is the desire to live in one’s home and community as one age. This can be a challenge, as
seniors may need assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as dressing, bathing, and cooking.
There are several senior services available to help people age in place safely and comfortably.
HOW SENIOR SERVICES HELP?
Senior services can help you age in your own home in a number of ways. They can:
1. Provide you with the assistance you need to live independently.
2. Help you stay safe and healthy.
3. Prevent loneliness and isolation.
4. Give you peace of mind knowing that you have the support you need.
