People may still want to move in with family, and this is where the choices become exciting. The extended family of multiple generations is desired by many people, and it seems to work well when families already have a close relationship. The parents or other senior members of the family (aunts, uncles, or older siblings) are embraced as vital, essential members of the family. The younger members of the family that become the hosts to the older ones desire their presence. When children are present, the older members can assist with child-rearing and supervision by offering a solid connection from another generation and time. In many ways, this is a healthy and effective relationship.
When there was no family to move in with, seniors used to have to consider nursing homes or retirement centers as the place to live when they felt that they couldn't maintain their own residence or decided they needed the company or companionship of others - that they weren't getting where they were living. Also, some people simply don't have younger family members that can take care of them.
Of course. some people may choose to remain living in their own homes where there is a large measure of comfort, convenience, safety, and security. Where there isn't, we have the opportunity to help make this happen.
Depending on their physical needs and requirements, it's possible for people to remain in their homes for the long-term and not need to consider leaving or moving in with family. They can just go on living where they are comfortable and where they are among familiar surroundings - both inside their home and in the neighborhood.
