Are You Successfully Aging in Place?

Like most Americans, you probably want to remain in your home as long as possible.  But many older adults, and even Baby Boomers, lack awareness of the home- and community-based services that allow for independent living.

We all want to live in our homes as long as possible; here’s how to help it happen.

To fill this gap, the National Aging in Place Council (NAIPC®) was established.  It’s a senior support system dedicated to help people have a plan in place as they age to remain at home, whether that is a single-family residence you own or one you share with extended family.  It can also be an independent or assisted-care community.

Whatever your definition of “home” is, NAIPC® can help you live there for an extended period of time.

NAIPC® has 5 major pillars:

1) Housing:  Are you comfortable and safe in your home, or do you need another home or modifications to your current abode?

2) Health:  Do you have access to the healthcare you need or do you need advice?

3) Finances:  Do you have sufficient financial resources to fund your retirement?  Would you like to pay less taxes in retirement?

4) Transportation:  Do you have access to the transportation you need?  Would you like information on more options?

5)  Community:  Are you part of a community and do you have the social interaction and access to entertainment you want?

NAIPC® is building a network connecting service providers with elderly homeowners, their families, and caretakers to better serve our aging population.

A partial list of the expertise families and older adults can access through this nationwide network includes:

  • Adult day care
  • Daily money management/finances
  • Elder law
  • Healthcare
  • Home remodeling
  • Occupational and physical therapy
  • Public non-profit resources
  • Reverse mortgages

To find a local chapter, Google NAIPC® at and search at “local chapters.”
