Fortify Your Ability to Remain Independent at Home
As we age, the challenge to stay in our home can sometimes be the day-to-day activities we now find more difficult. Things like cleaning, scheduling appointments, managing medication, preparing a meal, maintaining a yard, or caregiving should not be reasons we can no longer live there.
Here are some questions to consider:
- Is my home safe?
- Am I comfortable in my home?
- Do I have access to transportation?
- Do I feel isolated?
- Can I afford it?
To answer these questions, there is a reliable network of agencies and organizations that specialize in helping seniors live in the community and residence of their choice. The backbone of this network are the Area Agencies on Aging who provide us with reliable information, resources and services.
Additionally, below, we can find links to services and supports that are specific to Staying at Home, and to the right are Quick Tips that are updated periodically.
