Hello. I am Caroline Bogart. I am a programmer, writer, researcher, and web developer. I build free websites for animal rescues. I was once featured in the Boston Globe for teaching programming to out of work programmers so we could build a website for a homeless shelter.
I am writing a book about reducing dementia symptoms with photobiomodulation (red light) therapy. Learn more on my website BestRedLightTherapy.com/brains
Senior Home Central is About Personal Space
In my college dorm, I lived with other people. I wasn’t crazy about it. In my post-college housing, I rented a house with several people. I wasn’t crazy about that. When my husband and I were young, we lived in a ratty apartment building. It was the only place that would let me bring my dog. I really didn’t like that.
I said this then, and I’ll say it until my last day. “I need my personal space.I need quiet time to myself. I don’t like smelling other people’s cooking.”
Why I Don’t Downsize
I can see downsizing from our current home, but I can’t see sharing space with anyone but my husband. It’s not a question of liking people. It’s a question of wanting things “just so.”
Assisted Living Kills Personal Space Goals
So the prospect of moving into assisted living, or even an active community, just doesn’t appeal to me.
I want to age at home, on my terms, in my space. I am a researcher and writer. I’ve taken a deep dive into how to age in place. What problems will I face? What solutions can I find? I share my research with you here on Senior Home Central.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope these articles help you — or your parents — live on your own terms, in your own home.
If you are wondering where to start on protecting yourself at home, I’d like to suggest looking at the MobileHelp medical alert products. The comprehensive product that covers everything (fall detection, location detection, medication reminders, home coverage, and away coverage) is the MobileHelp Duo.
