Intentional aging-in-place communities support elders’ ability to make choices

No matter how small the adjustments we need to make in our lives are, most of us like to be presented with options from which we can choose. Even if the choices presented aren’t exactly what we’d like, if we can make conscious choices we generally feel better about our fate. That is why intentional aging communities, sometimes called aging-in-place communities, are flourishing in some fortunate parts of the country. Other types of more loosely organized communities that offer services to people as they age are also gaining favor.
