Need directions to better Aging in Place?
Every day we deal with people who are aging in place. Everyone seems to feel so alone in the process. I always say there should be a support group for people trying to age in place. This website is that support group. People can ask questions anonymously – no real names ever needed – without embarrasment or fear of anyone trying to contact you to sell you something.
When aging in place, there seem to be more new challenges than you ever counted on. You don’t have to figure everything out by yourself. Join in our conversation to help each other. Each “challenge” is what someone is dealing with right now.
HELP. LEARN. WIN.
