Ensuring our parents can continue to live independently at home as they age is something we all wish for. To allow your parent to continue with their day to day activities with ease it may be necessary to adapt their home. But if this isn’t practical you may want to consider receiving care in the home or even downsizing.
Many people like to ‘age in place’, to stay at home and retain as much independence as possible. To facilitate this, some adaptations may be required to your parent’s home to ensure they are not vulnerable to falls or other mishaps.
