Family Home
Home Life Questions Your Child Will Want You to Ask:   If I’m still living at home with my parents, what will happen when my parents die – where will I live, and with whom?  What supports do I need to continue living as independently as possible in my own home and community as I age?  What modifications need to be made to my home to accommodate barriers of aging?  How can I be supported to age in place?  Are there community resources for seniors I can utilize, such as Meals on Wheels or housekeeping assistance?  Are there things such as dementia happening to me, adding to concerns of my safety?  Am I in danger of falling or other hazards? Are there home modifications to help keep me safe?
