With a large and still growing baby boomer population, the Asheville community has always made an effort to provide options for older adults who want to age in place instead of traditional nursing homes.
What is Aging in Place?
Aging in Place is exactly what it sounds like. This is an option for older adults to age in their own homes rather than move to an assisted living or a nursing home facility. The Aging in Place community is committed to offering resources to enhance and facilitate the lifestyle outside of a medical environment.
Adapt Your Existing Home
For comfortable aging in place, consider these renovations to your home:
- Improved lighting
- Accessible toilet
- Walk-in shower
- Slide-out cabinets
- Different counter heights
- Single story living
