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

A: The term is widely used in the caregiving industry to describe the ability of an individual to remain living in their own home or the home of a family member through the entirety of their golden years. Aging in place is the opposite of institutional care provided in nursing homes, but in some cases, it may also mean the ability to stay in an assisted living facility.
