Aging in Place

I write and speak on the topic of aging in place and living in the environments of choice as we mature. Shelter is at the heart of what it means to be human and we all need a safe physical dwelling in which to situate our lives, cultivate meaning, and be fully ourselves.

I believe successful aging in place begins first in the mind–then in the physical. It can be learned and is possible for most (not all) given the set of circumstances. To be more independent you will need to be more inter-dependent.Aging in Place is a team sport, it happens with insightful planning, a Desire to remain home, and a sense of humor of course!
