We're Here to Help You Age in Your Own Home

You shouldn’t have to figure it all out on your own. AgingInPlace.org is here to make it easier, more affordable, and more fun to age at home.

Data shows that 77 percent of adults 50 and older want to remain in their homes for the long term, but one third of adults 50 years and older say they need to modify their current home for themselves or a loved one to do so. The good news: There is no one way to age in place: You may need only a few new products and small changes to your home, or you want to make larger modifications but don’t know where to begin.

What does aging in place look like to you? Let’s make it happen together.
