Hearing the words “There’s no place like home,” takes a lot of us back to the movie “The Wizard of Oz” with Dorothy tapping her bright red heels together. 

As we age, most prefer to “age in place” — referring to living at home.

Our homes are our safe havens as well as place that provide freedom, memories, and often financial advantages if the home is owned. However, some features that once were easily navigated as part of everyday life — stairs, bathtubs and kitchens — can become a hazard.
