Senior Residences vs Single Family Living
As we age, the eternal question faces us: May we stay in our home or is it time to move into Independent or Assisted Living? Recent figures compiled by the National Association of Home Builders found that 89% of Americans over 50 wish to remain in their own homes indefinitely. As a result of the increase of aging homeowners, there has been a similar interest in developing ways to restructure living so that we may stay in our homes rather than moving.
If you would prefer to ‘age in place’ there are a number of things you can do to restructure living to stay at home rather than moving.
Some of the more popular changes are:
  • Panic button pendant and 2-way communication system
  • An automatic medication dispense which controls timed doses
  • Widened door jambs
  • Handrails at all steps
  • Nonslip flooring at critical spots
  • Ramps at lower thresholds
  • Walk in shower
  • Chairlifts to access another floor
There are many agencies and web sites to assist us in analyzing if we will stay in our homes or move on to other living conditions. Take advantage of your local senior services, by picking up a free copy of the ELDER CARE DIRECTORY  at your library or senior center or call the San Diego Union Tribune at 619-293-2335 to order your copy for $10. ….and, of course, call me, your local Realtor for ideas and references.
Happy Living wherever you choose to Live!
