Planning for the future can be a stressful endeavor. That’s why Home Instead® created the Home Your Own WaySM free resources to help you or a loved one discover the best place to age: your current home or someplace you may have never considered. It can be a tough decision, and these tools are designed to help aging adults or their adult children start the discussion and begin planning. This program encourages families to learn more about these important topics:

  • What to consider if you stay in your home
  • Common home safety hazards and how to fix them
  • New technologies to help a senior stay at home
  • Conversation starters for older adults and their children

To discover how a Home Instead CAREGiverSM could help keep you or a loved one safe at home, contact your local Home Instead office.
