“If you prepare yourself at every point as well as you can…you will be able to grasp opportunity for broader experience when it appears.”

Aging in Place

The website NextAvenue (AARP) posted an article written by Ralph Mroz (Sept/25/2020) with the title The Disadvantages of Aging in Place. The piece was well thought out and provided an action plan of sorts for (ironically) successful aging in place by pointing out potential problems. I encourage you to read it and employ it as an action plan. The author anticipated many of the pitfalls for you so they can be addressed ahead of time.

Here are my comments:

1. Great article Great points

2. Use these points when preparing ahead

3. Most people will be aging in place

Know the challenges and prepare

4. Most won’t prepare for a number of systemic reasons

5. Which leads to making a series of better-bad choices often in crisis continually for many

It is not about independence, it is about cultivating inter-dependence.

If you want to stay in the home and community you love, be proactive. You planned that vacation to a place you love. Why not employ that same energy and investment in the place you call home?

Aging in place works until it doesn’t…
