The process of considering the options around staying at home is complicated and the fragmented approach that has existed up to now has been a major source of frustration and stress for those either looking for themselves or on behalf of a family member .

Over 90% of us want to age at home and many Irish senior citizens are joining a growing trend of adapting their homes and planning for a safer and more independent in older age. Some of the things ageinginplace.ie aim to achieve are:

At ageing in place, we are strong advocates of assistive technology and the improvements it can bring to our senior citizens and circle of care. That is why we promote the latest product, service, and technology innovations for making ageing at home easier and safer.

One of the key concerns that people have when adapting their homes is that they don’t want the home to look medicalised or disabled. We promote an inclusive design process whereby homeowners are actively involved. The area of home adaptations has seen significant innovation and a range of solutions exist that are both functional and stylish?

Promote the idea of a more pro active and planned approach to ageing in place. Home renovations and repairs are a common and regular occurrence. Ageingingplace.ie believe we should take a proactive approach and consider home modifications as a process like standard home repairs and renovations
