We talk with Erik Listou from the Living in Place Institute. What's living in place? It's staying where you are, rather than having to go to a senior community or assisted living facility. Erik tells us that there are some relatively low-cost things you can do to your home that can keep you safely there…and it doesn’t have to look like an institution. Even if you’re not ready to think about this, your parents might be.
Erik's the co-founder of the Living in Place Institute. He is committed to helping all people live in homes that are accessible, comfortable, and safe.
