When aging parents need care and support, you may face some tough decisions. Do you help your parents stay in their home or downsize? Buy a new home to accommodate them? Help them move into a senior living community?

For a growing number of adult children, having a parent move into their existing home can be the best situation for the whole family.

But is your home a good fit for your parent's needs?

Your parent may have physical challenges or risk factors now or in the future that require additional space and safety measure that you may not have planned for and your home can't accommodate.

Understanding risks and planning ahead for renovations--big and small--can stave off accidents and added stress, and help you focus on what is most important: making your parent comfortable.
