HOME ALONE? NOT ALWAYS BEST. “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts,” U.S. Senator Daniel Moynihan famously declared. In marketing and sales and advertising (and yes, occasionally even public relations) opinions are often miscast as facts.
(In my opinion) these findings, as is often the case with popular research, simply reinforce a commonly held belief. Still, they do offer older adults and their families impartial, factual information as they struggle to distinguish the benefits of community living versus aging-in-place.
