Recent studies concluded that the majority of Wellington Seniors, and those nearing senior status, desire to "age in place" or continue to live in the homes and apartments they currently occupy. "Aging in Place" describes a senior homeowner, or physically disabled individual's ability to remain comfortably and safely in their home.
Wellington offers home inspections to provide residents with information, to plan and help implement home modifications that promote safety, mobility, security, and continued functional use.
