Embracing change isn’t easy, especially as you age. You want to be surrounded by loved ones in a comfortable, familiar environment. You want community.
We created AgingInPlace.org as an extension of your community. A community of resources and guidance to make it easier, more affordable, and more fun to age where you are.
In fact, 77% of adults age 50 and older want to age at home. If you or your loved one are in that number, you’ve come to the right place.
Explore our breadth of resources—ranging from home and medical products, mental health services, financial planning, and more—to make your home a comfortable, safe place to live out your golden years.
