"Aging in Place": ADA President Co-Authors Article on Meeting Elderly Population's Needs

An article published in the most recent issue of the Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, co-authored by ADA President Sylvia A. Escott-Stump, MA, RD, LDN, finds older adults' preferences combined with limited private and public resources indicate that aging in place may be the best way to meet the needs of an aging population.

The article, "Innovative and Complementary Approaches to Aging in Place," discusses the need for options that promote aging in place (or remaining at home rather than moving to a long-term care facility) as a viable choice. As experts in a variety of academic areas, the authors call for a holistic or "ecosystem" approach to care management in helping older adults remain in their homes. The approach includes modifications to living spaces, safe and healthy eating and innovative clothing design.
