Living in Place Solutions will show you how to successfully age in place.

As the baby boomer generation grows older, their determination to stay healthy and independent has not wavered. Aging in Place, safely and comfortably as each new year arrives, has become a rapidly growing, national trend. Called “Aging In Place,” this new lifestyle has tremendous benefits for older Americans.

A recent AARP study found that 77% of adults over 50 prefer to age in place in their current home.

Deciding to stay at home and doing so safely can present unique challenges.

That’s when Living In Place Solutions, a Columbia Maryland based company specializing in senior safety at home, can be the difference between living the good life or waiting for disaster to strike. We are certified aging in place specialists.

The Living In Place Solutions Advantage

We take time to listen. When it comes to retrofitting a home for retirement, boilerplate solutions will not work. By taking the time to talk to you about your situation, we can come up with the best solutions for you.

We’re certified specialists. Talking to contractors directly about safety proofing you home will not yield the best results. We are aging in place specialists, and we understand the challenges faced as we age at home.

We’re got contractors and referral sources. We have a vetted list of trusted, experienced contractors that we have used successfully on other projects. From grab bars to smart home technology, we’ve got you covered. We also have access to other critical resources like physical therapists, medical experts, engineers, and financial planners.

We’re just like you. We’re a boomer-owned and operated company so we already walked a lifetime in your shoes. We look at potential solutions from your point of view, making us a trusted partner in this process.
