8 Questions to Consider Before You Decide to Age in Place

Today’s senior living communities offer more services and amenities than ever, with perks that range from the convenient (like on-site healthcare facilities, transportation, and home maintenance) to the luxurious (like on-site 5-star dining options and indoor pools). Yet communities are not the choice for everyone. We at Ingleside believe in choices and the right situation for everyone. We offer continuing care retirement communities (life plan communities) as well as in-home care services for someone that would prefer to age in place.

Caregiver Assistance: Addressing Caregiver Stress

Caring for an aging family member is a labor of love. But study after study also shows the emotional, physical, and even financial stress that the caregiver incurs as a result. 

Research conducted by MetLife Mature Market Institute revealed that approximately 10 million adult children over the age of 50 (that's roughly a quarter of all Baby Boomers!) have taken on the role of caregiver for their aging parents, helping with a variety of tasks–everything from running errands and cooking to bathing and using the toilet. It's a lot to take on, especially for caregivers who may also be juggling a career and their own children, which is likely why caregivers over age 50 who work and provide care to a parent are more likely to have fair or poor health as compared to peers who do not provide elder care.

6 Simple Steps to Prevent Falls

Did you know that falls are the No. 1 cause of injuries, hospital visits and deaths among people 65 and older?
