Keeping It Safe: Aging in Place among Rural Older Adults
Peek, Gina G.; Bishop, Alex J.
Journal of Extension, v54 n2 Article 2RIB5 Apr 2016
The purpose of the study addressed in this article was to identify ways to reduce risk and improve safe aging in place among rural older adults. Resident and Extension faculty and county educators visited study participants at home to assess functional capacity and the home environment. Extension professionals may be uniquely positioned to provide programming to help older adults age in place. Aging in place programming may help improve quality of life for older adults and their family members and caregivers.
