What are some of the benefits of Aging in Place for homeowners in Livonia, MI? Here are a few:

• Aging in Place allows you to stay in your home, allowing you to avoid having to live in a nursing home or an assisted living facility. Leaving home can have a number of psychological effects, most notably what is known as relocation stress or transfer trauma which can lead to feelings of depression, alienation and concern. Staying at home can keep these feelings from becoming an issue.

• These modifications can dramatically increase your quality of life, allowing you to feel safe and secure in your home once again. After all, if you can’t feel safe how can you fully enjoy life?

• Allows you to keep your independence, maintain your privacy and stay invested.

• Protects you from pathogens more commonly found in assisted living facilities where one must share space with a number of others. Your home is a much more controlled environment, which is preferable from a healthcare perspective.

• Staying independent helps preserve brain function, as maintaining a complex daily routine is the best means of keeping your mind healthy. Also, it’s been found that people who live busy lives and keep themselves engaged simply live longer lifespans on average.
