Aging in Place

“Aging in place” means staying in your own home and community as you get older. Good planning can help. Think about how your housing needs may change as you age, and make sure your home is suitable.

Many seniors choose to downsize, find a home with few stairs, or live close to shops and transportation services. These choices can all help people live in their own homes for as long as possible.  

As well, the B.C. government funds community-based, non-medical home support services – such as housekeeping and transportation – in communities across the province. These services are designed to help older people age in place.
