Nearly 90% of homeowners approaching retirement want to stay in their homes as they age, according to AARP. Preparing ahead of time to have the ability to do so is a smart move, as the cost of aging in place can be significant. Not only do homeowners have modifications to consider, but there is also the expense of occasional in-home help or even full-time care. Following are several recommendations, courtesy of AARP, to age-proof one’s home and maximize its usefulness throughout a person’s life. Some of the modifications can be done over a few years to maximize cash flow and minimize disruption in the home if considered ahead of time.
