Nearly every elderly person wants to stay in the privacy and comfort of their own home for as long as possible. That’s why nearly a third of seniors don’t live in a care facility live alone, including about half of women over the age of 75.https://t.co/7PZgJGVIty pic.twitter.com/ozK09qz5Wx— Senior Moves Australia (@seniormovesaust) September 3, 2021
