Moving is a young person’s game. Aging in place is one way for seniors to eliminate the hassles of finding a new place to live when their needs eventually change. Discover how a move to senior independent living in Northern Kentucky can be the last move you’ll ever have to make.
What is aging in place?
Aging in place is the philosophy behind living in the same home during your golden years without sacrificing the quality of life. The ideal situation has a home set up to be accessible as mobility changes or health problems develop.
Anticipating what someone needs in a home will transition from pre-retirement to five, ten, or 20 years down the road.
What might people not consider?
- Changes in hearing and vision
- Joint pain and muscle weakness
- Fall hazards
- Alzheimer’s and dementia
- Staying socially active
- Stamina to cook and clean
- The ability to drive to essential services
- Fraud protection
Older adults can plan and modify their homes extensively, but life is not always as predictable. The easiest way to find a home that can cater to preventing future catastrophes is senior apartments. Lexington, Kentucky’s Legacy Reserve at Fritz Farm is one community that offers the three major senior living options, all under one roof:
- Independent living
- Personal care
- Memory care
Kentucky is home to over 1.6 million people over 50, and nearly one-fifth of seniors live in the Lexington area. Fayette County is a great place to spend retirement. Fun fact: The Bluegrass State offers free college tuition to residents over 65.
