“Down-sizing is difficult for anyone, but even more so when the people have not moved in decades and no longer have the strength or stamina to even think about this task. We divide this process into a series of small steps that clients can deal with and accomplish and or receive assistance in certain areas. Our goal is to make your transition faster and easier too! Whether you have family nearby or far away, we will create a plan that can be shared and communicated every step of the way.” – Brian Chandler
Aging in Place or Downsizing for Seniors
For aging adults, retirement often comes with the difficult decision to stay at home or move to a senior care facility. While living in your own home provides freedom and privacy, there are medical and financial challenges that come with aging that makes it necessary to move.
Aging in Place
Aging in Place, or remaining in your own home, is best for someone who loves their autonomy and has made the necessary preparations. It means that they have a home that is safe and accessible and has the financial capacity to afford in-home care should the need arise in their later years. It is also best to live near their loved ones or a reliable support system that could help them whenever needed.
Downsizing is often the best option for seniors who want to cut costs or have medical problems requiring constant care. Selling their homes could provide them with additional funds to cover their retirement and other medical expenses. It also relieves them of managing a house, which can bring stress and risk of accidents.
“A retirement community offers a plan for the future,” “There are services and amenities that help maintain well-being longer. It is purposefully designed with a focus on whole-person wellness that nourishes six components critical to good health: physical, social, emotional, intellectual, vocational, and spiritual.” If you would like some tips on how to pick the right retirement community for you, read this entire article.
There are many options available for senior care. Seniors must understand their options to find a place suited for their care needs and still allow them to thrive physically and mentally.

A desire among many seniors is to “age in place.” According to the Senior Resource Guide, the term means,
“…that you will be remaining in your own home for the later years of your life; not moving into a smaller home, assisted living, or a retirement community etcetera.”
There is no doubt about it – there’s a comfort in staying in a home you’ve lived in for many years instead of moving to a totally new or unfamiliar environment. There is, however, new information that suggests this might not be the best option for everyone. The familiarity of your current home is the pro of aging in place, but the potential financial drawbacks to remodeling or renovating might actually be more costly than the long-term benefits.
