Almost 90% of people aged more than 65 years want to stay in their home for as long as possible, and 80% believe their current residence is where they will always live, according to the AARP. Aging in place has its benefits; those who stay in their homes can be more comfortable in familiar surroundings, not to mention saving expenses they might incur in another setting. A main concern for caregivers and families of those aging in place, however, is their personal safety. What happens in case of an emergency, or if they fall?
The concern is reasonable. One way to address it? Through emergency response services and proactive wellness solutions, which can give families and caregivers peace of mind by helping older adults manage their chronic conditions where they live.
