New name for Aging in Place

Louis Tenenbaum has done it again. With his experience and insight, Louis Tenenbaum has come up with a better name for aging in place. Many of us in the industry have thought we needed a new term for some time. No one likes the term Aging. People recoil from the term and don’t like to think of themselves as old. Old is always five years older than whatever age I happen to be. Additionally, in spite of a lot of media attention, most people still don’t have any idea what Aging in Place is. Louis has suggested that instead of Aging in Place we call it Long Term Care at Home. Most people understand what long term care is. What we are saying is that you can choose to receive long term care at home instead of in a facility. Not only CAN you choose it, but it is the BEST choice. Brilliant!
