The physical and emotional challenges of aging can convince many people to move from their longtime homes out of concern for their well-being. Aging Safely in Your Home is a practical guide to not only help you decide if it’s possible to stay put, but perhaps more importantly, how to adapt if you choose not to move. The two-part book looks at the issues that arise as we age in our homes: our self-reliance, our need for networks, and our capacity to maintain a great quality of life. It provides a blueprint to successful independent living by identifying the important ways to modify your home to stay safe: how modest renovation and some common-sense practices will reduce your risk of injury and increase your well-being.
