How Viable is Aging in Place?

Aging in place: it’s an idea many older Americans find appealing. But how practical is this idea?

In this Before I Die New Mexico Festival presentation, Daniel Gaillour with Gaillour Group Real Estate talks about aging in place. There are unexpected issues Baby Boomers face when they want to help their aging parents live out their lives with comfort and dignity.

As a Realtor®, Gaillour has first hand knowledge about the problems that can occur. He sees adult children who want to buy a home to house both themselves and their parents. It doesn’t actually work that well to make such large life changes. In this video, he presents good ideas and options that you might not know about.
