What is Living in Place?

Living in Place refers to staying in your current home, but with the addition of certain home modifications that enable you to live comfortably, despite changes in your body’s capabilities.

Some home adjustments could include lowering kitchen counters, installing grab bars, increasing
hallway lighting or adding a smart doorbell.

Living in Place is a wonderful luxury that allows you to stay in familiar surroundings near friends and neighbors.
