Aging in Place. Has anyone successfully managed to allow their parents to remain in their own home?
I have been reading a lot about the "Aging in Place" movement. The research seems to confirm that his healthier and less traumatic for seniors, if it can be managed. It is also more cost effective especially since assissted living centers are now charging between 2,500 and 5,000/month (and, frankly, I cannot see the value in these facilities). The problem is, I cannot find too much specific information about how this is accomplished.
I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has managed to to this and, if so, could you please share your experiences? how do you organize care? does Medicare or Medicaid support these programs? did you make modifications to the home? how mobile is your parent?
