What is Aging-in Place?

We Know What Arlington, TX Residents Want from a Home Remodeling Contractor

Aging-in-place is the concept of remaining in one’s home safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level whether it be physical or cognitive. It means the pleasure of living in a familiar environment throughout ones maturing years, and the ability to enjoy the familiar daily ritual and special events that enrich all our lives. It means you get to plan how your needs are met, now and in the future. It’s the reassurance of being able to call a house a “home” for lifetime.
