The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines aging in place as “the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level.” The core purpose of the Round Table is to find solutions for aging in place, by connecting families with qualified and trustworthy professionals.
The Aging in Place Round Table seeks to educate the community about local services supporting vitality and choice in the second half of life, and provides a forum for discussion and collaboration about the issues surrounding aging in place.
