Aged care at home

What is aged care at home

Over time, the concept of Aging in Place has become the preferred choice of lifestyle for most older adults. Ageing in Place means that you wish to remain living in your own home for the later years of your life. This is the most popular lifestyle choice because seniors wish to live their later years surrounded by their possessions, pets and a familiar environment, whilst being connected to their neighbourhood and community.
While ageing in Place is the preferred option for many, some may find it a bit challenging. As you get older, living independently and managing all the everyday living tasks can become more difficult. When things you used to do become harder, you can seek assistance. Getting a little help with daily activities means you can stay independent in your own home safely for longer, maintaining your dignity and choice.
