a multi-generation making a meal in the kitchen


Some people call it aging-in-place. We call it living-in-place.

Where will you live in the future?

More and more Minnesotans are getting to the point where they need to make some decisions about where they are going to stay for the long term. Single Family Home? Condo? High Rise? ADU?

Based on an AARP study, “77 percent of adults 50 and older want to remain in their homes for the long term, a number that has been consistent for more than a decade.”

The question remains – Does my home meet my current lifestyle, and will it meet my future lifestyle needs? We can help you answer these questions!
