Independent Living Advice
Most seniors, given the choice, would prefer to stay in their own homes and communities for as long as possible. However, many will encounter barriers or obstacles to maintaining an independent lifestyle. These include problems related to physical or emotional health, lack of a proper support network (community programs, family), housing, safety and security, mobility, and communication.
Independent living allows those with physical limitations caused by age, weakness, disability or ill health to live full lives within their own homes and communities. The information featured on the pages below, while quite extensive, is not meant to take the place of a professional assessment by a qualified clinician. If you feel it is warranted, you should always consult a physiotherapist, occupational therapist or doctor for advice.
