Homemaker helps with house chores
The majority of Americans would like to remain in their own homes and communities as they age, instead of moving into a long-term care center. While for some it may be a preference, for others it may be a necessity due to expenses, logistics and other factors.

Aging-in-place takes planning and may require a large network of caregivers, services, and even physical modifications to the home.
