For millions of Americans, living in a nursing home or assisted living facility is not how they'd prefer to spend their retirement years.

With concrete guidance for obtaining necessary social services, transportation assistance, health care, and even home maintenance help, How to Age in Place teaches you to anticipate problems before they arise and plan accordingly.

It's never too late--or too early--to begin putting your plan in place.
