About this item

The first authoritative and comprehensive guide to "aging in place"--a burgeoning movement for those who don't want to rely on assisted living or nursing home care--which allows seniors to spend their later years living comfortably, independently, and in their own home or community.Do you want to retire happily in a home you love? For millions of Americans, living in a nursing home or assisted living facility is not how they’d prefer to spend their retirement years. This is why more and more people are choosing to “age in place”—a burgeoning national movement that enables older adults to live independently and comfortably in a place of their own choosing.   Aging in place takes some planning and foresight—which is why clinical psychologists  and aging specialists Mary Languirand and Robert Bornstein have created this indispensable guidebook to take you through every step of the process.
