In Prescott, Arizona, we have a large senior population as our town has become a hotspot destination for retirees. With a great hospital system and plenty of doctors to choose from, events going on downtown every weekend, four mild seasons of weather, and a beautiful landscape, who wouldn’t want to retire here?!
With this larger population of seniors and retirees, what is being found a lot more often in these groups is “aging in place.” Aging in place is what it’s called when older Americans choose to stay in their homes throughout the aging process rather than go into assisted living facilities.
