The National Aging in Place Council® is a senior support network. We work together to solve your problems.
NAIPC® was founded on the belief that an overwhelming majority of older Americans want to remain in their homes for as long as possible, but lack awareness of home and community-based services that make independent living possible. Our mission is to make aging in place a physically and emotionally secure, rich, and viable option for every older adult in Greater Atlanta.
To this end, on behalf of our community we:
- Offer sound and up-to-date information and education to access complimentary professional expertise and services.
- Foster collaboration among interested businesses, practitioners, public agencies, and non-for-profit organizations.
- Advocate for policies, regulations, and practices that enable healthful aging in place.
Most Americans do not make a plan to age in place, although you should start thinking about one before you plan to retire. Creating a plan can prevent unexpected events from turning into challenges that compromise one’s ability to live independently. Just as many of us made a plan to go to college, we should have a plan to age optimally. In planning for college, we knew what school we would attend, approximately what we would spend on books and tuition, where we would live, and what we would do for transportation. An optimal aging plan needs to be just as detailed, and just as common.
If that is your goal, we urge you to take advantage of our support network. Our network of over 50 members are experts in health care, financial services, elder law, advisory services, design and home remodeling. All of our members are thoroughly vetted, and are dedicated to helping meet the needs of our aging population. They will assist you so you can remain independent in the housing of your choice.
