Ask a Pro - What does “Aging in Place” mean?

“Aging in place” is a term used to describe seniors who prefer staying in their own homes rather than moving into a retirement community to receive care they may need.

For those that decide to stay in their homes relying on friends, family and professional services to assist them with their daily needs, may need more and more help as each day passes. Safety may become an issue; stairs may become an obstacle to conquer each day. Daily chores that once would take a few minutes are now lengthy tasks. Possibly a spouse recently passed away and the need for socialization or downsizing is sought after.

The Williamsport Home, a continuing care retirement community, offers distinctive levels of care so once a senior moves onto campus, they can age in place with us.

From Independent Living Apartments to Skilled Nursing Care to Short-term Rehabilitation, we are here to provide the assistance you need, when you need it. Personal Care programs, a secured Memory Care unit, and End of Life Suites/Comfort Care Services, are also a part of The Williamsport Home’s continuum of care offerings.

If you have questions about aging in place, please contact The Williamsport Home at 570-323-8781 and ask for the admissions office.
