Aging in place means older adults are able to stay in their residence of choice for as long as they are able, and often requires careful planning to adapt to changing needs. Choosing to stay might mean modifications are made to the home to create a safer environment. It may also mean more support services to assist with various tasks, including physical activity. Older adults who have cognitive and functional limitations and whose homes are not adapted to their needs sometimes consider moving to a retirement home or long-term care home.
