|Information & Resources for Seniors Living at Home|
By 2025, the senior population in the US is expected to reach nearly 72 million. In addition, seniors today remain in good health longer thanks to healthier life-styles and better health care. In fact, persons reaching age 65 have an average life expectancy of an additional 19.0 years (20.3 years for females and 17.4 years for males).

The number of senior Virginians age 85 and older will also increase dramatically, with a projected growth rate 5 times faster than the state’s total population rate. Surveys conducted by the AARP and other groups continue to show an overwhelming preference for living at home as we age, often referred to as "aging in place." In fact, many people choose to live out their entire lives in the familiar comfort of their home and never make the move to a residential facility.
