We have always held to the hope, the belief, the conviction that there is a better life, a better world, beyond the horizon.
~Franklin D. Roosevelt
Aging in Place
I believe 3 things about aging in place:
1) Shelter is at the core of what it means to be human.
2) As Laura L. Carstensen, Ph.D., Founding Director of the Stanford Center on Longevity, noted: “Our environments presume youth,” therefore adaptation is required.
3) Aging-in-place is an Ecosystem, a network of interactions between living beings and their environment controlled by internal factors (mind/body) and external factors (built environment, financial, support systems, and technology)—thus, to be more independent you’re going to have to be more INTER-dependent.
This I believe,
