Featured Business: National Aging in Place Council
According to AAPR, “87% of adults 65+ want to stay in their home and communities as they age.” But successful aging in place is an active process that takes planning and resources. It is the mission of the National Aging in Place Council to be an “informational resource so that you remain active and healthy throughout your retirement years.”
Here are some helpful tips and tools from NAIPC to help you create a successful plan for aging in place:
- Act III Planning Template: This comprehensive template can help you to assess your current and future needs in five critical areas so you can create a long term aging in place plan that will work for you.
- Professional Service Providers: As you age, your needs changes…and your needs for services may change. NAIPC members are services providers that have completed a background check and application process so you can have peace of mind that you are hiring a legitimate senior service provider. It is still good practice, however, to interview multiple service providers to make sure there is a good fit before hiring one. You can use this national database to find local service providers for a multitude of categories.
- Practical Advice: Get practical advice on common challenges and concerns related to aging in place. Aging in place successfully means getting the support and information you need when you need it.
Successful aging in place requires resources. With scams targeting older adults on the rise, it can be difficult to know whom to trust. NAIPC can help older adults and their families to find the resources they need and can trust so they can remain active and healthy.
