“I want to stay in my own home!” is an often heard wish from people who are growing older. Aging in place is an option for most, and part of our mission here at the Senior Connection is helping Blaine County seniors maintain the independence to do just that.
Planning early can be one of the most important steps to aging in place. Making necessary changes or remodels to your home, as well as making the necessary financial, legal and health care decisions in advance is much easier than trying to do it in the middle of a crisis. It is also helpful to be aware of community resources that are available in advance of a change in your condition.
The Senior Connection offers programs and services that support the continuum of aging in place. From offering lunch here at the center to help provide good nutrition and socialization, fitness classes to help maintain mobility and health, transportation when driving is no longer an option, to a variety of home care opportunities for when it comes time for a little help.
