According to a recent AARP survey, nine out of ten Americans aged 50 and older want to stay in their own home indefinitely. Yet at some point, triggered by a series of gradual changes or the sudden onset of disability, the question inevitably arises, how long will we be able to stay where we are? Our answer is, longer than you may think.
Being happy and healthy at home means, first of all, being safe. But it also means being engaged in activities that are meaningful to you, like taking care of yourself, managing the work that needs to be done, spending time with friends and relatives, pursuing your favorite hobby, reading, and watching TV. Being safe and staying active requires a good fit between YOU and your home, or the ENVIRONMENT, and the ACTIVITIES you want to engage in.
