On Wednesday, May 23, I attended the McDaniel College Center for Aging’s update on Aging in Place. Not surprising, the results of a recent survey given to those over 60 indicated that over 90 percent of the aging population (which is rapidly growing) wants to age in their own home.
The exciting news is that more and more services are available to those who wish to “Age In Place.” The reality is that most are unaware of those services which exist and how to find them. Another reality, those services are fee for service not covered by insurance or subsidies. And finally, what the survey did not ask, are you willing to do what it takes to actually have the possibility of successfully aging in place?
