Aging-in-Place

The Center for Disease Control defines aging-in-place as “the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level.”

Everyone age two and up are considered a part of the aging-in-place market. Key concepts of this include safety, comfort, convenience, and accessibility. Aging-in-Place consists of three ability levels; without urgent needs, progressive condition-based needs, and traumatic change needs. Bath Housing has three distinct ways in which we are promoting aging-in-place:
