The vast majority of older adults want to stay in their existing residence for as long as possible. This desire brings up questions such as:

  • Can they handle required maintenance?
  • Is the residence safe for them?
  • Will they be comfortable once their circumstances start to change or will modifications be necessary?

These and similar questions make housing one of the most important issues to address in the aging process. Your aging loved one’s future contentment, comfort, and safety depend on careful consideration of available housing options.

Topics covered in the Aging, Caring & You housing podcast include:

  • Issues impacting housing options such as desired lifestyle, location proximity to services, and aging loved ones’ health status
  • Housing options such as ownership, rental, group living, assisted living, and continuing care communities
  • Advocates for residents’ rights in long-term care facilities
  • Making modifications to address safety issues if aging loved ones are staying where they are

After listening to the housing podcast, caregivers will be better prepared to speak with family members and professionals about their aging loved ones’ housing needs and how to address those needs.

Make a modest investment in your loved ones.
