Aging In Place? Or The Impossible Dream?

Aging In Place
While 90% of older adults want to age in place. What are they doing to make it a reality? Today I had the opportunity to attend a meeting of the National Aging In Place Council (NAIPC). Members of the group are individuals who work in the aging field. Such as home care agencies, remodeling, interior design, realtors, and financial services.

The council principals are based on five pillars

Housing
Health
Finance
Transportation
Social Connection

Now, the question is how much is your average 65-year-old taking action to improve their older age? If you ask professionals in the aging sector their answer is many people avoid the topic. Unfortunately, being unprepared and hoping things will work out is not a strategy.

Tips For Aging Well

Self Awareness - Acknowledge your strengths and weaknesses. Homeownership, debt-free, strong relationships are strengths. However, isolation and depression are not.

Housing - If you have a home it's more than likely an asset. If not, you want to reduce your housing costs and use these to hedge for inflation later in life.

Health - Perhaps you've been diagnosed with a chronic condition now is the time to make management of your condition a priority. Invest in your health with time and care.

Financial - Make the most of your spending dollars and save. Enjoy your disposable income and invest wisely in experiences that you can relive over a lifetime.

Transportation - Accept the fact sometime in your life you will no longer feel confident to drive. Then develop a plan and create a network to support your business and social interests.

Social Connections - Start local with neighbors and colleagues to develop a network of connections. Explore your interests and get social. These relationships may be the individuals who have the answers or resources you need.

How do dreams come true? I believe it begins with a vision of where you want to go. Then making daily progress toward your dreams. Begin today with your plan to age in place.
