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

A: The term aging in place is widely used in the caregiving industry to describe the ability of an individual to grow old in their own home or in the home of a family member.

However, in some cases, aging in place may also refer to the ability to stay in an assisted living facility and receive additional support that comes from an outside source.
