Aging in place is often the default option people think of when they think about where they want to live as they age. For some people, it’s not the best decision.
There are many costs and factors to consider before choosing to age in place. Sometimes, an independent living facility, assisted living facility, or adult family home can be better long-term options. Each situation is unique, which is why it’s important to look at all the factors, including how it affects loved ones.
