According to AARP surveys, 90% of Seniors want to live in their own homes.
They are comfortable in familiar surroundings, where their children and families grew up. Where their memories are based. However, 80% of Seniors have done NOTHING, to make their homes more Safe, Efficient or Livable for the aging process.
The option is for the Senior to go to an Assisted Living Facility. There where staffing levels that do not permit caregivers to spend time with your loved one. It often is many miles from their current neighborhood. Therefore, friends and families are less likely to visit every day. The Senior loved one, is around other Seniors that they do not know. And often it’s difficult to visit with other occupants of the assisted living facility, except for either attending scheduled activities or eating meals in the dining hall.
And assisted living facilities often cost from $3,000 to $10,000 per month, depending on the level of accommodations purchased.
