Q: What does the term "aging in place" mean?

A: Aging in place is the term we use to describe a situation in which an older adult can continue to live in the comfort of their own home to live out their golden years safely and comfortably with our essential at home senior care. In essence, it is the opposite of institutional care, such as a nursing home. However, in some situations, aging in place can also mean providing extra help on-site, in an assisted living facility or a nursing home, so a senior can comfortably live there as well.
