Live, Age and Thrive is a community site dedicated to facilitating and planning all aspects of creating a rich and rewarding environment for retirement and aging. Participants in our community may be caregivers for their aging parents or loved ones but also interested in the planning process for their own retirement. Our community is unique in that the resources presented will be enriched through engagement and interactivity of our community, editorial staff and the vendors and companies providing services and products.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention 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." It is demanding planning exercise, requiring a 360-degree approach to the development of a real estate and financial plan as well as lifestyle, wellness and healthcare strategies. You may choose one of the myriads of alternative real estate strategies rather than strictly aging in place but all the same planning components remain valid.
Virtually every Baby Boomer has or will face issues caring for their aging parents or loved ones who in many cases will not have done the requisite planning. This community provides information on immediate solutions and products as well as the resources needed to develop long-term plan.
Our community highlights tools, technologies and trends for successful aging in place. The community discussion includes in-home healthcare monitoring technologies, home design and accessibility (Universal Design and Smart Homes), wellness and healthcare, as well as financial and real estate strategies.
Welcome and we look forward toward your participation and input.
