    Assessing Housing Options

    Elinor Ginzler, Director of Livable Communities, discusses the variety of housing options for older family members. When deciding whether your loved one is able to stay in their home, consider any changes that need to be made to the home in order for it to meet their changing needs. If staying at home is not an option, it’s imperative to choose the right type of facility — independent living, assisted living, retirement community, etc. — to meet their lifestyle and their health care needs. Most important is to involve your loved one in the search and decision on their next residence. After all, it might be the place they will call home for years to come.
